SUSTAINABILITY

VJS Construction Services understands the benefits of high-performing buildings as well as our responsibility for minimizing effects on the environment through collaborative involvement in sustainable design and environmentally responsible construction procedures.

In addition to operating costs and benefits to the building users, sustainable buildings can contribute to non-financially tangible benefits such as social costs, environmental costs, and impact on the community. We actively look for partnerships in the communities we serve that support reducing the consumption of raw materials, water, and fuels to protect our natural resources.

 

We have a number of LEED-accredited Project Managers and continue to train our staff in sustainable construction principles and procedures. At VJS, we seek out subcontractors and suppliers committed to the use of recycled materials, rapidly renewable materials, low-emitting materials, and local/regional materials.
