Skanska USA / Beers Construction came to Susan Graff and her project team for assistance with sustainability-related staff trainings, ISO 14001 EMS development, and guidance on reducing resource use and improving construction waste recycling. The team created an instructor training program on sustainable development awareness, which was designed to efficiently reach 2,500 employees. Graff also delivered policies and procedures that incentivized waste reduction and improved use of green materials. Skanska reported cost savings of $500,000 during the first three years of system implementation after training. Additional results included improved scheduling around construction due to heightened awareness of impacts and the reduced environmental footprint of the business.
