The Importance of Sustainability in Commercial Construction

Environmental sustainability has been a hot topic lately across all industries, increasing traction over the last year. Commercial construction is no exception. Sustainability can take many forms and meanings depending on what industry you’re in, but in our world, it usually involves natural resources. At Schroeder, we’re committed to providing our clients with high-quality buildings made from the best materials. But this doesn’t have to come at a cost for the planet. We work to choose building materials that are responsibly sourced and recycled, when possible.

Plan Your Resources

Before taking on a sustainable commercial construction project, you have to analyze how your resources are going to be used. Our team of professionals takes care to make sure we use each site to its full potential and making sure nothing goes to waste. Additionally, our practices minimize the amount of energy we use. Energy conservation reduces the amount of potentially hazardous byproducts in the air and also can be extremely cost effective.

Energy & Water Conservation

In addition to energy conservation, water preservation and using a material in the most efficient way possible is another goal during our projects. Using less water and making sure the water around us is kept free of chemicals and hazardous materials is an easy way to be 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. This not only keeps you safe in the immediate future but also prevents using additional energy to remove the chemicals from the water sometime down the line.

Stay Healthy

Once your commercial building is complete, using sustainably sourced materials can also be beneficial for the health of those who frequent the space. In addition to being sourced responsibly, these materials typically contain fewer to no chemicals found in traditional materials. Choosing better materials can be not only beneficial to your physical health, but also your financial health. The local and federal government sometimes gives tax breaks for using more sustainable materials in your construction.

At Schroeder Construction Management, we’re dedicated to designing the commercial building of your dreams. For more information, give us a call at 603-882-1822.
