Listed as #18 in the Top 100 Green Buildings Contractors

September, 2019

ENR listed Hathaway Dinwiddie as #18 out of the 100 Top Green Building Contractors, moving up 9 places from 2018. We are proud to be a leader in the construction industry for our dedication to sustainable building.

Sustainability Manager Jessie Buckmaster offered her perspective on the state of the industry and is quoted in ENR. Embodied carbon has become a concern for clients, “especially for large corporate clients that have carbon reporting commitments, as well as for public municipal clients. During preconstruction, we are being asked to evaluate structural material options to achieve the lowest carbon footprint, such as CLT mass timber, which we are using on several projects, and to explore ways to reduce emissions through concrete mix designs and other building products.”

Generally, the clients Hathaway Dinwiddie works with still require sustainable design and construction or LEED certifications, says Buckmaster, but now “are adding other project certifications to layer into their sustainability strategy.” This includes WELL, Fitwel, LBC and internally developed zero waste and materials goals.

In addition to the many LEED-certified projects we have completed and are in the process of building, construction is in full swing on our Santa Monica, California City Services Building and is on track to receive Living Building Challenge certification. It is an exciting time to be involved in building for the future generations that will occupy these “green” buildings.

Congratulations to all who were listed on this list. The entire industry is better because of all of us working toward a common cause.
