We are committed to creating a greener and more sustainable future, and this prompted us to establish a dedicated Sustainability Committee in 2011. This committee of employee members researches, coordinates, and implements various initiatives intended to promote sustainable practices.
We opt for clean energy alternatives
We have installed solar panels on the roofs of some of our offices and retail plazas as a source of renewable energy.
We support our local ecosystems
We have dedicated dozens of acres of natural open space in the last decade and enhanced animal habitats where appropriate. We have also partnered with a local company to provide a home for a colony of bees, a valuable and important part of our urban ecosystem.
We designed our office for sustainability
We installed an automatic light adjustment system to maximize the use of natural daylight, changed all light fixtures to LED, and installed infrared sensors that reduce energy usage in vacant spaces. We also shut the power off nightly to nonessential outlets and centrally operate the temperature control to maximize efficiency.
We recycle on site
We have dedicated bins on our job sites for wood, which is reused for mulch on site or sent for recycling where appropriate. We are also crushing and reusing stone on our job sites where possible.
