We are passionately committed to sustainable building practices
Santa Clara, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) May 18, 2011
Hallmark Construction played a key role at the Silicon Valley Green Expo held last week at Santa Clara University (SCU), considered the event of the year for the Silicon Valley branch of the United States Building Council. A perennial platinum sponsor of the event, Hallmark educated students and industry professionals on sustainable building practices as well as the company’s heralded green credentials.
“Hallmark has one of the strongest portfolios of green construction projects around,” noted Kenji Ohkawa, a Hallmark LEED-AP project manager. “We are excited for the opportunity to inform people of what is practical and on the cutting-edge of sustainability.”
A popular attraction at the event was a tour of Santa Clara University’s award winning Solar Decathlon House. With the sponsorship and technical support of Hallmark Construction, SCU students competed with teams from around the globe to build the most attractive and energy-efficient home possible, and SCU’s Solar Decathlon House placed third in the world.
“We are passionately committed to sustainable building practices,” remarked Ohkawa, “and our support of the Solar Decathlon team is a great way to help instill green values in future architects and engineers.” The USGBC event was filled with both informational and interactive exhibits hosted by contractors and technology suppliers showing off innovative products and building practices.
Hallmark recently completed the global headquarters for National Geographic School Publishing. The project is one of the largest private commercial green tenant improvement projects in Monterey County. Hallmark has also completed substantial LEED certified projects for companies throughout Northern California. While clients don’t always seek LEED certification, Hallmark’s LEED Development Team helps reduce waste and incorporate green materials in every project.
