Environmental Sustainability

Swinerton supports and encourages all efforts to reduce the environmental impact of our projects. We have established green building practices and continually educate our clients, subcontractors, and consultants about methods that can mitigate the impact our work has on the environment.

Green Building

We understand that building green is not only the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do. Green buildings yield cost savings through reduced energy and water consumption, provide healthy indoor environments, and place less of a burden on natural resources. As builders, we have a responsibility to minimize environmental impact and to create the energy-efficient communities of tomorrow. Since creating one of the nation’s first green buildings back in 1970, we’ve remained at the forefront of sustainable construction practices. Our commitment attracts forward-thinking employees who are passionate about the latest innovations in green construction, and our green building experts help clients go above and beyond their sustainability goals.
