Sustainability

We generate sustainable alternatives at a rate that exceeds the industry norm. Protecting the environment and conserving resources sets the tone for the operational life of a project—from our initial design and engineering considerations to the processes and methods we use to mitigate impacts from construction. Our customers and communities benefit from the positive environmental outcomes delivered by our people, projects, and practices.

Internal initiatives, created and driven by our employees across the company, continually generate new ideas in project sustainability.

We regard sustainability, we view it as our responsibility to enhance the positive effects of our projects where possible and avoid or mitigate the potentially negative externalities. We believe that we are not just delivering a physical asset to our customers and communities but also creating an enabling environment that will benefit everyone in the long term.

We are fortunate that the scale and mix of our projects enable us to make significant positive impacts in the communities where we work. For us, sustainability requires a focus on protecting people and the environment, promoting economic development, and partnering with communities and society across the project life cycle.

We leverage our experience and expertise in engineering and design to generate sustainable alternatives in the construction of our projects—including reducing material requirements, waste to landfill, and water and energy use—and to help our customers achieve “green” building certifications, such as Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED). To help our customers and communities manage the effects of extreme weather and other atmospheric changes, we also improve the resilience of the physical structures we create for clients to depend on them for years to come.
