Green Building Initiatives

  • Published a handbook for architects and contractors on “Guidelines for Environmentally Sustainable Design & Construction” to inject environmental aspects into new builds and renovation projects.
  • Requires contractors for all remodeling and new construction projects to divert, at minimum, at least 50% of resulting waste from landfill disposal through reuse or recycling. They must also complete a Waste Reduction Plan prior to contract approval, and submit a quarterly project report detailing all activities related to waste minimization and recycling.
