A.P. Construction’s Environmental Commitment
We will be stewards of our environment by taking responsible actions
in our business, community and personal lives.
A.P. Construction has completed numerous sustainable construction projects. We believe improving environmental performance is responsible business practice and will increase A.P. Construction’s value, value to our clients and aid in preserving the environment for future generations.
We have extensive experience supporting our clients with their environmental sustainability efforts and with the installation of green systems and materials. Many projects are LEED certified and include the installation of geothermal heat pump systems that can reduce energy costs up to 40%. We recycle construction debris as much as possible and have installed green construction materials such as cellulose insulation, carpets made from recycled materials, low-e glass with Lutron Daylighting systems, and lumber from sustainable forests in a variety of our construction projects.
Metro Green III
Metro Green III was awarded LEED for Homes Gold certification, the Green Building Council’s second-highest rating, and is considered a key initiative of the Stamford 2030 District, a community of high-efficiency buildings in Downtown Stamford.
We worked with the design team to reach the goal of attaining a LEED Gold rating. Project included a four well geothermal system with heat pumps, Xeriscape landscaping plan which reduced irrigation to only the grass areas, and low consumption plumbing. Additionally, renewable energy/green power achieved through the installation of photovoltaics.
Trumbull High School
We oversaw a four-year, multi-phased project under occupied conditions that included modernizing all old systems such as air handling, electrical, and security systems to new energy-efficient systems that helped the project achieve a LEED Silver rating. The project involved an asbestos abatement program to ensure that the school was a safe environment for students and faculty.
