Environmental Sustainability Procedures

As a company, GMH Construction is dedicated to pursuing Green Building techniques and finding methods of sustainability to reduce our overall impact on the environment. We do that through salvaging and donating certain demolition products for reuse and recycling common Construction & Demolition (C&D) debris. 

  1. C&D materials consist of debris generated during the demolition and construction processes. Common debris such as lumber, metal, masonry, tile, carpet, insulation, plastic, cardboard, and more is taken to a single-stream recycling facility for sorting and processing.
  2. Donated items such as cabinets, counter tops, and fixtures in good condition may be donated to a local organization such as Habit for Humanity for salvage, sale, or reuse.

The benefits of these steps help to offset the environmental impact of construction, potentially reduce the associated environmental issues, and conserve landfill space. These process are promoted by the EPA as a Sustainable Materials Management (SMM) approach and are a socially and environmentally responsible activity.
