Sustainability

Sustainable construction is an extension of our responsibilities and we are committed to creating facilities that minimize the long-term impact on our environment.

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

Whether we are integrating simple techniques – like using local or recycled construction materials, recycling jobsite waste, utilizing low VOC materials, and employing local workers to minimize energy consumption for transportation – or we are using more sophisticated methods – such as integrating geothermal HVAC, solar hot water systems and sustainable storm drainage systems – our goal is the same: to build a more sustainable future.

We constantly strive to incorporate today’s most innovative sustainable construction solutions, practices and procedures to ensure that each facility we build reflects our commitment to sustainability and the goals of our clients.

Sustainable construction is an extension of our responsibility to the communities in which we build.

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

  • Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED)
  • Energy Star
  • Earthcraft House
  • Enterprise Green Communities
