When we build, let us think that we build forever.
Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone.
Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for;
and let us think, as we lay stone on stone,
that a time is to come when those stones will be held
sacred because our hands have touched them,
and that men will say, as they look upon
the labor and wrought substance of them,
“See! This our father did for us.”
—John Ruskin (1819-1900)
While green building has become a recent trend, we at OAC take a different perspective on sustainability. We believe that no matter how green your structure is, that does not make it sustainable. To be truly sustainable your structure must stand the test of time. Our method to creating sustainable structures is through a QAO program, which produces true sustainable quality.This program verifies, through observation, that processes and assemblies are being constructed properly.
