Sustainable Design and Construction

Inherent to the McShane Construction approach, sustainable construction is an extension of our commitment to the communities in which we build. We don’t design and build “green” buildings to receive an acknowledgement or award, or because a client requests it – we do it because it’s the right thing to do.

We are committed to designing and constructing facilities that minimize the long-term impact on natural resources. McShane Construction employs highly-experienced LEED Accredited Professionals to integrate sustainable design and construction techniques to varying degrees on each project. We work hard to ensure that our clients receive the financial benefits – both short- and long-term – of considering the many green construction options that can positively impact a project financially.

McShane Construction is committed to building a more sustainable future, whether we are integrating simple techniques like the use of local or recycled construction materials, recycling waste on our job sites, utilizing low VOC paints, glues and adhesives, or employing local workers within a community to minimize energy consumption for transportation – to more sophisticated methods such as the integration of geothermal HVAC, solar hot water systems, and sustainable storm drainage systems.  We constantly strive to incorporate today’s most innovative sustainable construction solutions, practices and procedures to ensure that each facility we construct reflects our commitment to sustainability and the goals of our clients. 

Our professionals are well-versed in the requirements of numerous sustainable building initiatives including:
