Sustainable Design

Sustainable building is at our core.

In recent years, there’s been a major push by many companies to adopt green construction practices, projects, and technologies. Building codes continually upgrade green requirements, and energy costs continue to soar for building owners. However, sustainable building has been our standard for the past decade, leveraging immense opportunities to capture value and cost savings while positively impacting the earth. Green initiatives can pay off dramatically, not only in environmental impact and sustainable ROI, but also in direct financial ROI, a more livable facility setting, and higher property value.

Our work is grounded on our firm commitment to respect and show our appreciation for the natural environment.

Leveraging technologies to improve efficiency.

Focus on the big picture.

Sustech projects are not only efficiently built and beautiful, but they are also built with scalability, resilience, and long-term lifespans in mind. Our team is highly skilled and constantly researching emerging and proven technologies, to apply best practices in construction, design, and maintenance to projects of sizes while keeping in the reality and unique needs of the industry in Puerto Rico. That’s why Sustech clients truly experience the best of both worlds.

Sustech works with the planet in mind.

Sustech’s approach to sustainable construction is based on integration, stewardship and respect for the environment. It is our goal to construct all projects using sustainable practices, regardless of whether the project requires a specific green building certification. As a commitment to our clients and the communities we serve, we strive to source green building materials, minimize waste, utilize local suppliers, salvage existing materials on renovation projects and prevent negative environmental impacts from construction activities.
