Green Construction

LEED is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies aimed at improving performance across all the metrics that matter most: energy savings, water efficiency, CO2 emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and stewardship of resources and sensitivity to their impacts.

Developed by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), LEED provides building owners and operators a concise framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

LEED is flexible enough to apply to all building types – commercial as well as residential. It works throughout the building lifecycle – design and construction, operations and maintenance, tenant fit out, and significant retrofit. And LEED for Neighborhood Development extends the benefits of LEED beyond the building footprint into the neighborhood it serves.

J.W. Enochs Inc. can facilitate for clients the certification of their projects by the USGBC through the LEED process.  This is an exciting and innovative approach to design and construction incorporating cutting edge methodologies to save energy, reduce waste, utilize local materials, and reduce a projects detrimental effect on the environment.  J. “Wilson” Enochs III, a LEED Accredited Professional, will familiarize you with the process, benefits, costs and results.  He will also coordinate the approval process with the USGBC.

Safety Commitment

Safety is a very important element of our critical factors for success.  Safety is more that just a commitment it is an integral part of J.W. Enochs’ Standard Operating Procedures.  Providing a safe working environment for our employees as well as all onsite craftsmen is not only the right thing to do, it is a responsibility we accept and embrace.

Making a construction site safe starts in the initial stages of planning.  It requires the development of operational procedures and strategies designed to prevent accidents or injury.  It requires constant and scheduled review of what is actually transpiring on the site.  This extends to ensuring all crews on the site are following all established state and federal safety regulations and that the most recently developed safety equipment is being used.

For years our documented track record has exceeded all industry standards because of our philosophy of including safety as core ingredient to our operating procedures.  It is this core value in protecting both employees and all those associated with the project that has yielded lower insurance rates which ultimately result in greater savings to our clients.
