Key Considerations for Going Electric
We are intentionally invested in our shared Pacific Northwest future. And the social, economic, and environmental resilience of this region. We place a high value on continuous learning, always seeking to improve in everything we do. From employee health and advancement, to innovations in sustainable building practices, to smart technologies and processes that drive greater efficiency. We keep our eyes on the outcomes. And then aim to go beyond.
On the jobsite, project schedules are carefully planned to assure safety is never compromised. Everyone is encouraged to stop unsafe work and address any issue immediately. We cultivate a team atmosphere that engages all jobsite workers through education, positive reinforcement, and partnership.
Safety extends to social and psychological health as well. We are a zero-tolerance company when it comes to harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. We train our leaders on the importance of an inclusive environment and provide them with the tools and training to achieve it. Healthy employees build healthy communities—which benefits all of us.
Our industry is evolving at a rapid rate. We are actively involved in organizations driving change, and we are committed to reducing waste and mitigating impacts on the planet and your budget. Our sustainability efforts include rigorous fuel and electricity tracking; carbon offsetting; and working with our clients and project team partners to enhance a project’s long-term viability. And as a Salmon Safe Contractor, we help keep our beautiful PNW waters clean and healthy.
Sustainability is also fundamental to social equity. Historically, people in poor neighborhoods, indigenous communities, and people of color have felt the greatest effects of climate change and economic disadvantage. We take charge of taking care of the environment, and providing physical and psychological safety, non-discrimination in hiring, and pay parity across all positions.
At least 75% of our jobsite materials are recycled, reused, or diverted from landfills
