Because of our extensive experience with “green” construction and our knowledge of sustainable building practices and products, McGough created the Bright Green Center of Excellence. Bright Green explores techniques for reducing waste and applying eco-friendly operating practices, providing information for our clients who are considering implementing criteria developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) or adopting proven practices that reduce the environmental impacts of building design and construction.
Bright Green's preconstruction and planning service provides valuable information to owners and their design teams who are evaluating a proposed project's site orientation, building form, materials and systems. Bright Green's expertise enables our owners to make decisions about pursuing various levels of sustainable construction, as well as focusing on a particular aspect of sustainability such as energy conservation.
In addition, Bright Green explores techniques for reducing waste and applying eco-friendly operating practices. We've adopted “green” strategies throughout our company to test cleaning products and utilize advanced recycling strategies. This focus on energy conservation and minimizing waste, which is implemented in McGough's offices, enables us to export these practices to our construction sites and provide useful advice to our clients.
