Our Conscious Effort In The Office

At our offices, we value the importance of utilizing recycled materials. Our proposals are made from recycled paper. We also collect all wasted paper, plastic, metal and toner cartridges for recycling. Our HVAC control systems are designed to minimize consumption of gas and electricity. We also use point-of-source water heaters and low voltage fluorescent lighting.

We utilize a companywide voice over internet protocol (VOIP) phone system and video conferencing to hold virtual meetings across the nation, eliminating travel costs.

Our LEED & Green Building Projects

We have executed two LEED Silver projects and two Green Building projects. These projects require: utilization and documentation of materials meeting recycled content and jobsite proximity specifications, jobsite practices that minimize waste and maximize recovery of recyclable materials, plus the sourcing of local products to minimize emissions from logistical activities.
