Environmental Protection and Green Building

The company takes care to create an insulation that complies with the strictest thermal insulation and caulking standards and thus protects the environment. Most of its exterior panels are made of high-quality and durable Jerusalem Stone which creates well-insulated houses that save energy. In the new settlement Gva’ot Eden, the company would execute green building that would blend into the environment.
