SUSTAINABILITY

At Plano-Coudon, we expect a lot of our construction projects. We believe our end products should be on time, on budget, attractive, functional, even inspired. They should also be efficient.

The cost of operating any facility – from an office building to a college dormitory to a hospital wing – can be tempered by following industry best practices for insulation, heating, cooling, lighting and other systems that impact energy use. At Plano-Coudon, we consider best practices for energy efficiency in all of our projects, assess the costs and benefits of high-efficiency systems, and help clients realize the best returns on their construction investments.

We also have the expertise, the experience and the enthusiasm to serve clients who want to hit high sustainability goals. Our team of project managers are all LEED certified and have completed numerous LEED-certified and LEED-equivalent projects. Those include:

    • Ground-up construction of the Green House Residences at Stadium Place – a 44,560-square-foot, LEED Silver, skilled nursing facility;
    • Ground-up construction of North Gate Business Park Lot C – a fast-track, CM-at-Risk,  80,000-square-foot office building that achieved LEED Gold certification; and
    • Construction of the New Colombiere Community Residence – a 60,000-square-foot, LEED Silver-equivalent religious building.

At Plano-Coudon, we have the expertise to handle green roofs, geothermal systems, sophisticated building controls and other features that can go into a LEED facility. We also have the meticulous work processes to satisfy LEED documentation requirements and the financial savvy to achieve LEED standards while staying inside the client’s budget.

At Plano-Coudon, we are pleased to put our knowledge of sustainability to work for every client whether the client’s vision is a building packed with high-efficiency and clean-energy systems or simply a best-standards building that limits the facility’s ongoing energy costs.
