Sustainable Building

From the start, CAL Development / CAL Construction has provided its clients with high-performance buildings using environmentally responsible construction practices.

CAL’s Green Building Systems program is committed to the construction of environmentally-friendly structures using the highest-quality, innovative materials – all while maintaining superior value, efficiency and safety. CAL offers sustainable commercial building services that can transform a facility’s environmental position, reduce operating costs through energy efficiency upgrades, and improve indoor environmental quality. CAL’s portfolio includes a number of LEED® Gold and Silver certified projects, and its teams strive to incorporate sustainable techniques wherever possible, including projects where LEED certification is not pursued.
 
Overall, the advantages to building green are numerous. Green buildings can better protect occupant health, and are both energy and water efficient. Designing for natural sunlight and leveraging architecture for optimal temperature control can greatly reduce a building’s overall cost of operation. Applying other green construction methods, including the use of local building materials and advanced waste recycling, provides further cost savings. A properly constructed green structure will continue to provide savings throughout its lifetime.
 
CAL has LEED® Accredited Professionals on staff, and is proud to be a member of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) – a network of organizations that span the industry, promoting green building initiatives and raising consumer awareness.
