Sustainable construction, also known as green construction, is concerned with the economic, social, and environmental impact of creating a usable structure requiring designers and contractors to use building practices that will not cause long-term damage to the environment. Sustainable buildings are designed to be energy efficient, to be healthy for the people who live or work in them, and to reduce pollution and waste.
AOW is dedicated to working with Engineers and Architects as a part of the project team to establish goals and objectives relating to sustainable construction. Establishing this outlook during the early planning and design phases of the project is essential in order to implement strategies that minimize the overall impact of the project on the environment.
AOW has Project Management Staff with LEED AP Building Design and Construction Certification, providing AOW with the ability to review and understand all LEED requirements. Additionally, AOW is able to serve as LEED Administrator on a project which provides a LEED credit for Innovation and Design.
