Sustainability

More environmental measures, less impact.

Environmental and sustainable building practices are evolving rapidly. Graham was among the first to start thinking “green” and we insist on staying at the leading edge of sustainable construction practices.

Our approach includes a wealth of specific environmental protection measures during construction from spill avoidance and site cleanliness, to watershed protection and dust control in sensitive facilities like hospitals.

Graham is continually upgrading our environmental awareness and sustainable construction practices from recycling and using renewable materials to working to green building standards, achieving energy efficiency and employing life-cycle costing.

Graham continues at the leading edge of environmental and sustainable construction practices. We are leaders in implementing LEED requirements, and initiatives from recycling and using renewable materials, to working to green building standards, to achieving energy efficiency and employing life-cycle costing that governs the management of all our projects.

  • Erosion and sediment control to minimize soil loss, prevent sedimentation of storm sewer systems, protect freshwater quality and reduce air pollution.
  • Test and commission all building systems to verify proper installation, calibration and performance.
  • Recycle or reuse materials wherever possible.
  • Prohibit smoking in enclosed spaces, including site trailers.
  • Enforce Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) management strategies.
