Commercial Green Building 

  

The commercial component of Frisco's Green Building Program includes: 
    - 100% of the roof complies with Energy Star™ Cool Roof Program specifications
    - 50% reduction of water consumption
    - Construction waste recycling
    - Shade tree requirements
    - Solar orientation

The program kicked off in November 2006, after more than a year of data collection and analysis, making Frisco the first city in the country to have a mandatory Green Building Program for all residential and commercial construction.
