Building Green

Americans spend the majority of their time indoors. Using materials and systems that are better for human health can increase workplace productivity, reduce health care costs and improve staff retention.

Green projects are constructed to be efficient, incur lower operating costs, and deliver better value to owners and occupants from day one – all of which is good for business. Skanska has long been an advocate for environmentally sound business practices. Each of our business units are ISO 14001-certified, the most stringent independent environmental standard for businesses.

No matter what you build, it can be built green

Skanska is on the leading edge of green building practices, supporting the evolution of existing standards. From office buildings and schools, to transit lines and highways, our team is well-versed in the green standards that are helping build resilient communities.
