Improving Communities and Environment


Braun Construction Group is committed to improving the communities and environment they touch through green and sustainable practices. We believe in the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) standards and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system because it is the responsible approach to construction. We recognize the importance of providing our clients with the knowledge of creating an environment that improves occupant well being, reduces waste, conserves natural resources and provides economic return on operating an efficient building.


Braun Construction Group provides training to employees and encourages them to attain LEED Professional accreditation. Our staff consists of many talented and certified LEED Accredited Professionals who have participated in LEED Charrettes, LEED Preconstruction Services, and LEED Platinum projects.


Green Practices


Green building practices eliminate a significant portion of construction waste and promises long-term benefits for building operations, including reduced energy consumption, improved employee production and health, higher re-sale value, reduced insurance risks, and reduction of impact upon civil infrastructure. Green construction practices enhance architectural aesthetics by utilizing available natural resources, and promises long-term benefits and cost savings for a building’s owner, operations and tenants.


Sustainability


Braun Construction Group provides clients with easy-to-understand information. This may include various options available to incorporate Green elements in their next project. The key to success is to incorporate sustainability into each option from the onset of the development effort. Factors include: site selection, demolition (where applicable), choice of building materials, and a road map to the construction process. Our team members coordinate with architects to ensure proper planning and execution of Green building design. Braun Construction Group facilitates pre-construction planning, general contracting, and construction management processes to gain the maximum level of LEED accreditation possible for your project.
