Today is Earth Day, and this morning, Turner Construction made public an ambitious program that could burnish its standing as a green builder.
This three-pronged initiative starts with Turner reaffirming its commitment, made in 2004, to “build green.” Over the past 15 years, Turner has worked on more than $60 billion of green building projects. The company has 1,500 LEED-accredited employees. It now diverts, on average, 75% of jobsite waste from landfills. And three years ago, it formed a National Sustainability Committee, currently comprised of 16 people who look for innovative strategies to apply to the company’s various projects.
