At Redco Construction Almana, environmental initiatives are improving the way that we build and operate our business. Our approach is that, even if a project is not pursuing a sustainable certification, it is important to bring sustainable principles to the design and construction process to maximize the value to our clients.
As a general contractor, the three ways we can have the greatest impact on the environment are by
Our biggest impact to the environment is the waste that we produce during a project. While our projects are currently diverting large percentages of the waste that comes on to our project sites, our goal is to ultimately strive for overall reduction of the amount of waste coming onto our sites, eventually, eliminating waste of all types rooted in a culture of sustainability.
Redco Construction helps our clients to meet their goals of building high-performance, healthy buildings, which we do through education of both our own associates and our clients. This means that our clients work with associates who understand how to build to sustainable standards and how to manage the LEED process. Redco through its sister company BG2 Global, which is the one of the most experienced LEED Data Center & in the UK, having built the 1st LEED Certified, Silver, and Gold data centers in the United Kingdom.
While we realize that our major impacts to the environment are through our abilities to eliminate waste and support our clients' goals, there are also things that we do culturally in our offices - both corporate and jobsite - that add up to make a large difference. REDCO has chosen to report to affiliate BG2 Global in order to be transparent in our goal to reduce our carbon emissions. By reporting to BG2, we give many of our clients’ access to meet their supply chain requirements.
