Building Professionals

GreenTown Joplin's mission is to make sustainable design and building more accessible. The following companies have been recommended to us as having demonstrated interest in and commitment to sustainability.

The people and companies listed here have been suggested by folks in the Joplin area, or are people we have worked with in the past. We know how hard it is to choose a building professional when you have no previous experience with home building (and so few people do). Our desire is to make this process easier by presenting the options on this page.

If you know of a business to recommend for this page, please let us know. If you would like to have your own company listed, please submit information about how your product or service relates to sustainable building.

Disclaimer: We have done our best to practice due diligence before posting these resources. GreenTown Joplin is not responsible for any issues that might arise in a relationship with a company listed here.
