Greener Building

Evergreen Construction is committed to sustainable design and construction practices. Many members of our team belong to the U.S. Green Buildings Council (USGBC) and the majority of our managers are LEED Accredited Professionals. Green construction methods can be integrated into projects at any stage from design through construction. However, the most significant benefits can be achieved if the design and construction team takes an integrated approach from the earliest stages of the project.

  • Because it’s the RIGHT thing to do
  • Reduce operating costs over the life of the building
  • Conserve and restore natural resources
  • Improve occupant productivity
  • Enhance occupant health and safety
  • Heighten aesthetic qualities

Sustainability Practices

Evergreen incorporates a variety of sustainable practices in our systematic approach. The Evergreen approach ensures that the building is constructed as one system rather than a collection of stand-alone systems. At Evergreen we develop a clear statement of the project’s vision, goals, design criteria and priorities. We work with the owner and design team to maximize the site by protecting and retaining existing landscaping and natural features while also ensuring that sustainable construction materials are used and effective material recycling programs are implemented. Evergreen would welcome the opportunity to work with you to explore any and all green building techniques and sustainable design ideas.

At Evergreen, we understand green building and sustainable design. Our portfolio features projects with sustainable design and green elements including facilities that have received LEED and Energy Star certification. This includes Clemson University’s inaugural LEED project the $22,000,000 LEED Silver Greek Community on the Quad Residences.

Sustainability is an integral part of the Evergreen culture. We understand the process of green building and sustainable design and welcome the opportunity to help our clients realize the cost savings, achieved over the course of a project’s life cycle, while also helping to ensure that the project has an immediate and ongoing positive impact on our planet.
