Clients, architects, and construction managers at the forefront of creating cutting edge facilities should also be at the forefront of creating buildings that do not unnecessarily deplete scarce resources during or after construction. Daniel O’Connell’s Sons understands this notion, and because of that we are a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.
We know that environmentally friendly design and construction methods are by far the most important commitments in construction today, even as technology for sustainability is evolving. As engineers, we know that buildings designed to be sustainable cost only slightly more than conventional approaches when factoring in the benefits of life-cycle cost savings. As builders, we also know that sustainability is our responsibility, so we understand how to work with team members in a collaborative manner. Commitment to the principles of LEED is a top priority at DOC.
