Sustainability has continued to be an integral component of our core values since the company’s inception more than 20 years ago. Although there may have been many changes since the company first started, our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle has remained the same. Through our membership with the New Mexico Green Chamber of Commerce and USGBC New Mexico Chapter, we make sure our team stays up-to-date with the latest advancements in sustainable technology, network with some of the leading sustainability professionals and implement/update our green programs based on what we learn.
As a silver level member of the New Mexico Environment Department’s Green Zia Environmental Leadership Program, we pride ourselves on our team’s commitment to sustainability. From the all-natural cleaning solutions developed by our employee Green Team, to our company-wide recycling program, HB Construction has some of the most innovative, company-wide green initiatives in New Mexico. Currently, we are working with the New Mexico Environment Department to develop a jobsite recycling plan template which will lay the groundwork for other construction companies to set up jobsite recycling program of their own.
As part of our ongoing commitment to provide our client with quality, sustainable construction, we assign a full-time LEED® AP to every one of our projects to ensure that each project is built with sustainable considerations which add long-term value for our clients and make a positive impact on the community. As an extension of this commitment we also develop a custom set of environmentally-conscious programs for each project to help ensure quality and safety.
Listed below are a few of these programs.
