Who’s Greener Than Us? Nobody!Contributor: Swinerton Blogger | September 18, 2014
At least, that is the case accordingly to ENR California from their recently revealed “California Top Contractors” ranking which placed Swinerton atop the list as #1 Green Contractor! Swinerton has always had a firm commitment to the environment and years ago was considered a pioneer in sustainable construction—from our first green roof at the Weyerhaeuser headquarters building in the 1970s to our own office headquarters participating the a LEED-EB pilot program and achieving the first Gold certification in San Francisco at the time.
Today our commitment remains as strong as ever, with a focus on renewable energy and green retrofits, in addition to our sustainable construction practices. We currently completing the first new office high-rise construction project San Francisco has seen in the last five years. The 28-story 535 Mission Street project, designed by HOK, is seeking LEED Gold certification. Just this July Swinerton’s San Diego office, an adaptive reuse project (built-out by Swinerton) achieved LEED Platinum certification. And the list goes on. We are proud to have a part in building a healthy future today and excited by the latest ENR rankings. We want to thank our internal green champions and all of our field teams for your hard work that contributed to this great honor. Keep up the good work!
