Sustainable Design and Construction

 As part of Cadence McShane’s commitment to the communities we serve, we adhere to sustainable design and construction principles. We use environmentally-friendly materials to create green buildings and deliver double value to our clients: reduced operational and maintenance costs and enhanced reputation.

Because we’re committed to delivering facilities that reduce the consumption of finite natural resources, we employ sustainable design and construction techniques to varying degrees in each of our projects. Particularly during the pre-construction phase, we work to help clients identify long-term savings and up-front benefits through a menu of green construction options. Cadence McShane is committed to conservation and sustainability. We recycle 50% of the waste stream from our jobsites, use certified wood, and find locally available materials. On large multi-family projects, we employ simple techniques like low-E glass, Energy Star appliances and high SEER cooling equipment to significantly reduce energy costs. On many of our commercial projects, we’re skilled at installing geothermal systems that allow our clients to take advantage of natural heating and cooling throughout the life of their building.

Our professionals are well versed in the requirements of numerous sustainable building standards including:

Many of our professional staff are LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED APs), and we’re actively and continuously implementing green expertise into our workforce.

If you share our passion for sustainability, let’s work together to ensure that we minimize the impact of your next building project on our limited natural resources.
