Sustainability

Corporations today together with city, county, state and federal government offices are constantly seeking avenues to incorporate sustainability into their core values.  As quoted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), "Sustainability isn’t part of our work – it’s a guiding influence for all of our work."

A basic principle so misunderstood is sustainability.  Simply it is everything we need for our survival depends on the natural environment.  CRS provides services to help corporations and governmental entities define sustainability within their operations.  Simple steps are implemented through an easy to follow plan WITH guidelines customized to assuring sustainability is reached with minimum disruption to daily operations plus minimum monetary impact.  Strategies are highly recommended to reduce environmental impact for both existing and new buildings.  Specific recommendations to reduce building impact are to secure LEED Certification (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) or at minimum follow the guidelines created by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC).

Our owner, Joan Meeks, has over 11 years of commercial construction experience having worked on LEED projects.  Specifically the construction management waste credit of LEED was her guiding force for becoming involved in recycling.
