Sustaining Green Tide in Building a Concern
“With the recent hibernation of residential and commercial construction, we've all been focusing on a lot of federal, state and local government projects — and most of them have been legislated to be green,” said Chris Day, vice president of San Francisco's Swinerton construction firm.
Previous projects by Swinerton, which has an office in San Diego, include the North Island Credit Union headquarters and Sunroad Centrum office tower in Kearny Mesa. Both buildings have LEED certifications from the U.S. Green Building Council, signifying their efficient use of energy, water and other resources.
Both of those projects were completed several years ago, when the real-estate market was still hot. Now most of Swinerton's biggest projects are government-funded, such as a $20.6 million NASA research center near Silicon Valley, which aims to be the greenest building in the federal system.
