KPRS is committed to staying at the forefront of green building. We believe that sustainable practices and environmental building provides unbeatable benefits to our communities. A healthier planet also contributes economic advantages and cost savings to our clients and subcontractors.
KPRS is a recognized green builder in Orange County and has ranked in the top 100 list of Green Builders nationwide. We are a member of our local Orange County Chapter of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and have completed numerous LEED projects in Office, Retail, Medical, Hospitality, Public, Industrial and Transportation buildings from 6,000sf to 600,000 sf. We have a team of LEED Accredited Professionals who oversee and ensure that our green buildings comply with the USGBC guidelines.
Our green practices are not limited to buildings under contract, but are often more heavily focused on consulting services for Owners and potential clients, both in LEED and non-LEED evaluations of green feature cost, feasibility and environmental impact. It’s important to remember a building doesn’t have to be LEED to be green.
Our green practices echo through our own business operations. One of our major achievements is waste stream source control. Construction management is a paper-heavy industry, and KPRS is leading the way to minimize both the raw material consumption and the necessary downstream waste management of paper products.
We have worked with our local reprographics company to implement a completely paperless plan distribution and bid solicitation system through BidMail. We have independently developed a paperless project close-out package, as well as streamlined our project management system by using Procore software to maintain all our files.
