The demand for environmentally friendly buildings has become a force in the market, with conventional construction seeming almost antiquated and obsolete. We've started to look fire safety and green buildings on our website, as well: http://www.hgi-fire.com/blog/photovoltaic-panels-and-fire-fighting-challenges.
