Sustainable Construction

“Sustainability” often means different things to different people. For Wilhelm, sustainable construction means protecting our shared environment through building responsibly, conserving resources, reusing materials, reducing waste, protecting the environment, integrating native elements, and conscientious sourcing.

Wilhelm is a proud sponsor of the U.S Green Building Council

The construction industry has an enormous impact – and an enormous responsibility – in maintaining our environment’s health and welfare. Sustainable practices are simply good business all around; they promote social, economic, and vibrant interaction that connects people with the spaces and places where life happens.

Wilhelm builds green-friendly measures into every effort, and we are fortunate to also work alongside visionary global clients leading eco-friendly initiatives to help restore and maintain earth’s balance. Each project is an opportunity to make a difference. Whether LEED Certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, or Green Globes Certified, or simply innovatively designed and built to conserve and preserve, today’s creativity is incorporating ideas and technologies that safeguard current and future reserves. Wilhelm’s LEED Certified personnel are at the forefront bringing immediate and lasting value to the construction process.
