Whether it is design, construction or operations, sustainability is considered with every aspect of the project. Our full-time LEED Accredited Professionals evaluate each project we work on to determine what areas can best benefit both the project and the environment. For example, in an effort to reduce energy waste and greenhouse gases associated with shipping and travel, we consciously make every effort to increase our purchasing of materials within the same locale as a given project. Additionally, we ensure all seals, caulking, and adhesives comply with VOC limitations as set out through the Credit EQ 4 requirement of LEED Green Building rating system. Overall, with each job we place emphasis on a reduction of shipping and packing materials, particularly those that are not recyclable, so as to reduce the amount of waste sent to the landfill and at a reduced cost to the supplier.
