Acronyms like LEED, GBCI and USGBC (among others) have become synonymous with green construction practices in our industry over the past decade. At Conlan, we understand that sustainability is a critical issue to our clients and our industry, and we strive to address this concern on every job regardless of labels and certifications. For example, we educate our employees, subcontractors, and vendors regarding the importance of recycling, bulk shipping materials, and utilizing proper green cleaning procedures.
We also understand the importance of proactive involvement from a green project’s conception. That’s why we manage the contractor responsibilities for the project and implement the necessary plans and programs during construction. We have experienced LEED Accredited Professionals (AP’s) on staff to assist our clients with GBCI registration and help them to obtain their project’s desired USGBC Certifications.
Conlan has fully embraced green construction by utilizing regional materials, diverting our construction waste from landfills via recycling, reducing heat island effect with white membrane roof systems, and using high-efficiency HVAC equipment and lighting. We have never failed to achieve the targeted LEED Certification level for any of our projects.
The Conlan Company is a committed member of U.S. Green Building Council
