D&B Construction is a pioneer of sustainability and LEED, the most widely used sustainable construction rating system in the world. Sustainable construction is not only beneficial to our environment, but it is beneficial to one another. Sustainably constructed buildings promote healthier living, and research shows that people who live or work in a sustainable build experience proven psychological benefits. For example, cognitive function scores rose by 61% in a green office building and employees were 44% better at making decisions towards achieving workplace goals. A report conducted by Grand View Research illustrated that the sustainable construction materials market has been a vital part of the construction industry’s green footprint and is expected to be worth $364.6 billion this year.
Our team is comprised of accredited LEED professionals, like our Operations Manager, Jess, who obtained her LEED AP ID+C (focused on interior design and construction) certification. Jessica became a LEED accredited professional because she “knew it would be important and relevant moving forward.”
At D&B Construction, we also put a huge emphasis on adaptive reuse, another form of sustainability in the construction industry. Converting buildings to give them new life has ingrained environmental benefits, and is something we do best. Check out some of our recent adaptive reuse work by learning about this 80,000 SF commercial office fit out and this 190,800 SF project that transformed professional office buildings into 81 industrial luxury apartments.
