We are always looking for new ways to build smarter for our clients
Grimes, CA (Vocus) November 22, 2010
Hallmark Construction, the Monterey Peninsula’s leading general contractor for sustainable construction, took part in the 2010 Monterey Bay Green Building Expo. The Expo, the region’s largest event of its kind, was created to support the launch of the City of Monterey’s Green Building Program.
Like many others from around the Monterey Bay area, Hallmark Construction embraced the opportunity to focus upon the latest innovations in sustainable building practices and green technologies.
“We are always looking for new ways to build smarter for our clients,” said David Russell, manager of Hallmark Construction’s Monterey regional office in Pacific Grove. “That’s why this [Expo] is such a great event because it gives us the opportunity to interact with those who are on the cutting edge of sustainability,” he continued. Earlier this year, Hallmark Construction completed the Monterey global headquarters for National Geographic School Publishing. To date, the stunning new headquarters is the largest private, commercial green tenant improvement project in Monterey County. Russell continued, “We are passionately committed to green building practices, and are the contractor of choice for clients throughout the region.”
The Monterey Conference Center hosted dozens of booths where local businesses, suppliers, and LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) professionals showcased ways people could reduce their carbon footprint at home, at the office, and on their next construction project. “Hallmark’s LEED Accredited Professionals (LEED-AP) consult with our clients on the best avenues to make their project greener,” said Kenji Ohkawa, LEED-AP and Hallmark project manager. “We work closely with architects and owners to create sustainable facilities, while lowering long-term costs, as well as building real value for our clients and the surrounding environment.” It is clear there is no silver bullet, and that going green will require a comprehensive change in the way people live, work, and build.
