Sustainability means fulfilling today's needs while being mindful of tomorrow. In a world where buildings are depleting our natural resources at exponential rates, caring for and preserving these God-given resources is vitally important.
U.S. Buildings' Impacts On Resources:
This is where sustainable design and construction come in.
The United States Green Building Council (USGBC) has found that the average high-performance green building:
When adding in less quantifiable factors such as increased employee performance and productivity due to more daylight and better indoor air quality, this figure is even more impressive.
Seeking ways to reverse the trends of depletion and pollution is an important part of our mission at DJ Construction. Not only because it makes good business sense, but also because it demonstrates who we are and what we believe.
We understand that resource depletion and pollution threaten the future of our communities. That's why at DJ Construction, we honor God by caring for the resources He has given us. We're challenging ourselves to implement environmentally-conscientious procedures and practices both at our office and on our job sites.
Save today. Invest in tomorrow.
