E Green Group was founded by Nicholas Blaise Koch, a LEED certified general contractor and Passive House consultant with 15 years of construction experience. Nick's experience as a project manager for sustainable building solutions includes pioneering the first LEED-Platinum assisted living facility in the country, as well as the nation’s first LEED-Platinum urban infill project. E Green Group built the first Passive House in Texas, which was also the first Passive House retrofit in the nation.
Nick started E Green Group with idea that the innovations of the sustainable building movement can be merged with the equity movement, so that advances in green building can benefit more communities. E Green Group is interested in innovative building science that reduces environmental impact and improves living conditions for all income levels.
The Passive House method is a proven, super insulation construction style that drastically reduces heating and cooling costs through nearly eliminating the amount of air leaving the house that is not purposefully redirected through a heat-exchanger. This, while increasing initial costs slightly, reduces electricity bills by 60-80%. This, we believe that is the future of green construction, and our company provides the technical skills and the know how to put you at the front of the green revolution.
