DESIGN FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE TODAY™!

.

Welcome to the Green Building Center - New Jersey website. We recently changed our name from the Green Living and Building Center. We are the same great integrated collaboration of veteran partners providing complete green consulting, design, construction, education and building products all under one roof! Our expertise and years of practical hands-on work in commercial, high education, K-12, hospitality, and residential markets has proven that it doesn't have to cost more to build green. Our name change was just to better align the New Jersey branch with out national headquarter, Green Building Center, located in New York City. As we look to expand to other states this year and forward, brand and name alignment was critical to us this year.
