Over the last decade, we have seen a dramatic increase in economically-friendly construction practices in the U.S. We are happy to say that green construction is the future and Reliable Contracting is proud of its commitment to the green industry. The goal of green construction to ultimately reduce the negative impact that a new building (or any type of construction) has on the environment by using eco-friendly practices. We have compiled a brief list of a few ways constructions sites can remain green today.
It can’t be overstated how important material selection is in the construction industry. In order to leave the smallest environmental impact, you need to utilize green materials. Examples of sustainable building materials include recycled glass, rubber, steel, and glass. Not only is recycling good for the environment it is an excellent way for companies to save money as well. Other examples of eco-friendly construction practices include the usage of warm mix asphalt and lower volatile organic stains and plants.
Since construction sites often produce a lot of waste, it is essential that materials are recycled whenever it is possible to do so. All too often, everything is just thrown into a large trash bin for it to be hauled away to a landfill. Sustainability should always be a priority when it comes to waste management. There are waste management companies today that have a clear focus on recycling which are happy to partner with construction companies.
Better Equipment Management
Unfortunately, many construction sites across the country have equipment running nonstop for no reason. Green construction sites turn off equipment that is not in use because it saves energy and is better for the environment. While this may be simple and straightforward, it is important to mention because it is rarely followed. Not only will it benefit the environment, but it will result in cost savings from decreasing the energy costs.
