In addition to the sustainable design elements and efforts associated with the new building, CCHS Building Committee is working with Turner Construction to achieve their goal of recycling 90 percent of construction debris. Turner had implemented a waste tracking system that allows all the project’s subcontractors to compile and submit the appropriate information. Turner’s personnel verify the information and track it with the project manager on a monthly basis. A separate waste stream is set up as required and workers are trained on the specifics of the efforts as part of their site orientation.
In addition to the construction debris, sustainability efforts on site include individual workers composting their lunch material.
