Testimonials / Friends of GBS


"When Brian and Brad came to look at the house last fall, I could tell from discussions with them that they were very knowledgeable about building and energy conservation. For parts of the job that I thought would be difficult to handle, they proposed several practical options.  I'm lucky I found them"

"Very impressed with GBS – they took care of me.  Their contractors were professional, knowledgeable and cleaned up after themselves.  And finally, it’s so nice to feel warm, not drafty, this winter.  I can see the wind blowing, but can’t feel it or even hear it."

"Our project is aiming for LEED Platinum certification, the highest available. This puts an extra burden on the contractor to make sure that not only are products in line with LEED standards, but the process of building becomes more complex. The contractor has to show a level of responsibility to the environment that is not usually manifested in the building practice. Brian Halprin of Green Building Services showed this and more. His behavior, actions, and relations to subcontractors, consultants, and others who played a role in this project always showed that he practiced ethically and believed not only in his end product, but in the process that he took to get there. In fact, both the clients and I hope to work with Brian again in the future on other projects."

"Brian worked with us to improve the energy efficiency of our classic, mid-century home.  He approached the project with careful consideration and planning before bringing in any of his subs.  His design plan was professionally written with explanation of work to be done and the benefit we would yield.  We are so happy with the improvements made and are now enjoying a warm and cozy home."
