At R&H sustainability is not just a topic of discussion, but something we are constantly putting into practice. Green building aligns with our company values of providing you with the best possible service and a quality finished product all while fostering teamwork, maintaining integrity and helping the environment.
Green Preconstruction Services
We know how important it is to clearly understand your sustainability objectives before construction begins. Collaboration early on in the project will minimize initial costs and help you make educated decisions about where to direct your resources so you can add value to your project.
Preconstruction works hand-in-hand with the design team and subcontractors to provide you with practical, cost-effective green solutions and ensure that your green design goals are met. Subcontractors and vendors provide us with necessary feedback as the design develops. Meanwhile, our team of experts is continuously researching and implementing new green products and technologies that can save on initial construction costs and reduce on-going energy consumption.
Green building services in the preconstruction phase include:
- Design assist meetings with subcontractor specialists
- Payback timelines
- Feasibility studies
- Project specification review
- Green material research and options
- New green technologies
- Cost / benefit analysis
- LEED scorecard and project review
- Submittal data / equipment availability and selection
R&H knows the scorecard. Our LEED® Accredited Professionals work with owners, designers, green building consultants, and subcontractors to analyze the LEED rating system and maximize LEED points. Our LEED knowledge combined with construction document review, material procurement, scheduling and logistics turns green ideas into green buildings.
