With all do respect to Warren G and the Regulators, this post is all about….commingled waste recycling! Whoa, bet you didn’t see that coming! But, its a topic top of mind based on a phone call with a project team the other day. If you haven’t been reading the reference guide lately and all the […]
You know, we give a presentation called Stopping Surprises, Managing the LEED Construction Process (which is GBCI approved if you need CEs!) a good bit, and one of the tips we mention is that communication is pretty important across a lot of the LEED credits (duh). We’ve written in the past about signage on construction […]

This credit requires cutting blackwater (water used for sewage conveyance) by 50%, or by treating wastewater onsite. Maybe its just the title – what sort of crazy technology do we need […]
There’s nothing like walking out onto a project site on a hot, sunny day, taking a deep breath – and inhaling a bunch of dust that’s whipping around the jobsite. Good times!
