As a responsible corporate citizen, Austin and its employee-owners have an obligation to protect and preserve the environment as we work. To accomplish this, we commit to sustainable solutions to mitigate a project’s continued impact on the environment.
With Austin’s experience in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®), we work to provide sustainable solutions to our customers on all projects. In fact, we pioneered some of the prototypes for the LEED certification program.
Our LEED Accredited Professionals and Green Advantage Builders design forward-thinking solutions to reduce both consumption of goods and the production of waste. Through systematic research of building materials, technologies, and implementation, we deliver high-performance, sustainable buildings.
Our portfolio of sustainable projects includes many noteworthy, precedent-setting projects, ranking Austin among the top U.S.-based contractors, according to ENR’s list of Green Contractors. We are active with the U.S. Green Building Council, and stay current with the most advanced strategies for sustainable building.
