Sustainability

Today’s owners, developers, and designers face the challenge of rising to ever-changing demands for healthy, accessible, secure, and productive facilities, but ones which also minimize negative effects on the environment, economy, and society. It’s a tall order, but Shockey can help you meet it.

Shockey builds buildings to last and has risen to the green challenge time and again. The durability of our structures is perhaps one of the greatest contributions to their sustainability. When we build for continued adaptation — in lieu of replacement or demolition — we effectively conserve countless energy expense and material resources.

From material sourcing and waste diversion/management to site stewardship and energy efficiency, Shockey understands how to build lean and green from the ground up. Our LEED® Accredited Professionals and ENERGY STAR experts are available to assist in tailoring sustainable building technologies to your project’s goals, whether a new structure or a renovation.

Two Shockey-built projects for Loudoun County Public Schools were recently nationally recognized by the EPA for leadership in environmental design, achieving ENERGY STAR certification and adopting higher energy-efficient decarbonization strategies to move the next generation of buildings to zero carbon.
