Stewards of the Environment
Korsmo’s approach to sustainable construction is based on integration, stewardship and respect for the environment. It is our goal to construct all projects using sustainable practices, regardless of whether the project requires a specific green building certification. As a commitment to our clients and the communities we serve, we strive to source green building materials, minimize waste, utilize local suppliers, salvage existing materials on renovation projects and prevent negative environmental impacts from construction activities.
We are highly experienced in completing LEED certified projects, and have often achieved higher certification levels than originally requested by our owners. We have also worked with several other green-building rating systems such as Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol (WSSP), BuiltGreen and Evergreen Sustainable Development Standard (ESDS), giving Korsmo a rich understanding of sustainability.
We view our projects as living, breathing spaces that must function in correspondence with their users. By implementing green building principles on each project we construct, we are able to provide a finished product that is comfortable, flexible and long-lasting.
