Firm helps construct a ‘greener’ future

When Jean Paul Ciaramella and Daniel Naim got to talking several years ago at the Venezuelan Business Club, they discovered they both worked in the construction industry, were passionate for sustainability and possessed entrepreneurial spirits.

That became the foundation for Ecode, a green-building resource site that won second place in the Business Plan Challenge FIU track. Ecode was also the People’s Pick winner in that track.

Ecodeonline is a green building resource site that provides tools for both contractors and the general public. The site includes a green building guide, a directory — and coming soon — a project lead finder. Ecode is also working on an iPhone application.

“We started noticing green construction becoming a really important topic among developers and contractors and clients. . . . Most of the customers wanted to do green building but they did not know how,“ Ciaramella said. Certified green building, he said, can be more complex than conventional.

Ciaramella, who graduated from FIU with a degree in marketing and finance last December, began creating EcodeOnline.com  when he was in college.
