Commitment to Sustainable / Green Building
Ashwood Construction, Inc. is committed to sustainable construction and construction practices. Green building is not merely a marketing function, but a moral responsibility. We believe that environmentally sound construction practices can be integrated without forsaking budgetary constraints. We were the first to develop and build an affordable, green rated seniors project in Fresno. With PV solar panels, energy efficiency exceeding Title 24 by 21%, native landscaping, and green finishes, the Oak Park Senior Villas Project has become a benchmark for green projects in the Central Valley.
Beyond development and building of environmentally sensitive projects, we believe in ongoing green education for our field and leadership staff. Currently, we have a certified Build It Green Project Manager and LEED Accredited Professionals on staff. We are well versed at participating in the green charrette process. We believe the creation and networking of the team, including the general contractor, in early stages of any project is important. With green building, it’s essential. We have worked extensively with owners and design professionals to recommend and assess the sustainable design options.
