With today’s environmental concerns of global warming, depletion of natural resources, and population growth, CA believes that the implementation of environmentally responsible technologies and compatible construction techniques are beneficial to the environment, communities, and to the construction industry. The implementation of competitive sustainable construction strategies encompasses rethinking the planning, design, construction, and operation practices to improve performance and provide a pleasing atmosphere. CA understands that sustainable construction requires the implementation of innovative social and environmentally responsible construction practices that contribute to the improvement of the quality of life.
CA’s experience with sustainable strategies in construction has contributed to the improvement of many communities around the world. This has been accomplished by implementing innovative materials and construction technologies to provide stronger, longer lasting, and more durable structures. These sustainable alternatives have resulted in significant additional benefits including optimizing energy consumption, reducing waste, increasing the use of recycled materials, and enhancing aesthetic attributes of the structures.
CA’s work in the area of sustainable construction was recognized in 2009 by the Texas Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
