Environmental sustainability is a hot topic lately across all industries, increasing traction over the last year. Commercial construction is no exception. As one of the most reputable commercial construction management companies, our team at Schroeder Construction is delving into this topic headfirst.
Sustainability can take many forms and meanings, depending on what industry you’re involved in. However, in our world, it generally involves natural resources. At Schroeder, we’re committed to providing our clients with high-quality buildings made from the best materials. Unlike other companies, we realize that this commitment doesn’t have to come at a cost for the planet. Our team takes precautions to choose building materials that are responsibly sourced and recycled when possible.
Plan Your Resources
Before taking on a sustainable commercial construction management project, you have to analyze how your resources will be utilized. At Schroeder, our team takes time to ensure we use each site to its fullest potential, and that nothing goes to waste. Additionally, our practices minimize energy usage.
Energy conservation reduces the amount of potentially hazardous byproducts released into the air. Further, this type of awareness can also be extremely cost-effective.
Energy & Water Conservation
In addition to energy conservation, water preservation, and using materials in the most efficient way possible is another goal during our projects. Using less water and ensuring the water around us is kept free of chemicals and hazardous materials is an easy way to become a more sustainable company.
We work hard to not only meet but exceed the environmental standards set by the government. When it comes to keeping your water clean, every detail of every aspect is considered. These precautions not only keep you safe in the immediate future but also prevent using additional energy to remove chemicals from the water.
Once your commercial building is complete, using sustainably sourced materials is beneficial for the health of those who frequent the space. In addition to being sourced responsibly, these materials typically contain fewer to no chemicals which are found in traditional materials. Choosing cleaner materials can be beneficial to your physical health, and also your financial portfolio. The local and federal governments often supply tax breaks for companies using sustainable materials and energy conservation methods.
