As a U.S. Green Building Council member, Stahl Construction is proud of its commitment to green building practices. Stahl was on the green page long before it became popular, having installed our first geo-thermal heating system more than thirty years ago. And for years, we have been incorporating recycled building materials and advanced energy-efficiency measures into our building projects.
While green design is primarily focused on the finished product, making construction less harmful to the environment is equally important. Construction projects inherently cause soil erosion, noise and traffic, and generate for every square foot of new construction nearly 2.5 pounds of waste. While we know of no way to eliminate these problems entirely, we make every effort to minimize them by using environmentally friendly construction techniques whenever possible.
Our LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) accredited professionals have a thorough understanding of green practices and principals. They are well-versed with LEED requirements and processes as well as the State of Minnesota’s Buildings, Benchmarks & Beyond (B3) guidelines for sustainability. Even if certification is not a requirement, we can still help with employing some of the best practices of green construction.
