It’s easy being Green.
Midstate Mechanical is committed to sustainable building and preserving the environment, and therefore makes every effort to employ green building techniques in our construction projects. Building “green” is an opportunity to use our resources efficiently while creating healthier buildings that improve human health, build a better environment, and provide cost savings.
The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainability site development, water savings, energy efficiency, material selection and indoor environmental quality.
Midstate Mechanical employs LEED Accredited Professionals who understand green building practices and principles, and are familiar with LEED requirements, resources and processes. Midstate’s project managers, estimator and foremen all attend specific training to help our customers determine the best high performance building strategy for their projects, including how to minimize resource consumption, utilize renewable and recyclable resources, create healthy non-toxic human environments and apply life cycle cost analysis.
With 60% of the LEED certification points related to the type of work Midstate performs, we have made the commitment to further expand our role and expertise in the area energy efficiency and resource reduction and consumption.
