July 1st Marks A New Era For Green Construction In Scottsdale

The New International Green Construction Code

Welcome back to LUXE BLOG. Today, we explore an exciting step forward in sustainable construction. Scottsdale, known for its commitment to green initiatives, recently made a significant stride as it implemented the 2023 International Green Construction Code (IgCC) on July 1. This move impacts future construction in the city and sets a tone for the rest of Arizona and even the nation.

The Path To A Greener Scottsdale

Remember the discussions we had on 'The Parque'? That urban oasis planned for approval, incorporating a 2-acre Central Park, a 5-star hotel, high-tech offices, and residential spaces?

  • Green projects gaining momentum
  • Urban oasis design models
  • Advancements in high-tech office spaces
  • Increase in residential green spaces

These innovative ideas symbolize Scottsdale's commitment to being a leader in green initiatives. The city has proven time and again that sustainable development is not just an aspiration but an integral part of its growth model.
