Sustainability and The Future of Construction Presentation

December 14, 2018

A team from Gilbane Building Company delivered a presentation to approximately 65 students as well as teachers and school administrations regarding sustainability in construction and the future of the construction industry as it relates to green building and sustainable processes and principles. Our talk consisted of a general overview of sustainability in construction and where it is headed in the future, as well as a look into the LEED certification process (Minuteman is looking to achieve LEED Silver certification) and the specific criteria and installations being implemented at their new school to achieve their LEED status.
