A staff meeting discussion in 1998 led to a company policy on recycling and re-use of leftover and used building materials. Our conscientious employees were concerned about the amount of materials we were sending to the landfill so together we crafted a policy to reduce our effects on the environment.
As a result of our efforts we were presented the 1999 Resource Efficiency Award by the Corvallis Area Chamber of Commerce and Benton County.
In a recent effort to promote sustainability we hosted the first “GreenHome Corvallis” event, a sustainable building materials and resources fair. We challenged our vendors and subcontractors to “Go Green” and they responded with not only new products but also documentation of what makes their products Green.
