Much like our construction management projects, we mitigate the risk of large developments all minimizing the financial risk to our customers.
Waste Classification and Management
Virtually every project Whitson CM manages incorporates waste management and recycling efforts. In Whitson CM’s construction management projects, it requires contractors to maximize recycling efforts and to provide documentation for LEED goals. In addition, our CIH services can be characterized as being a waste management program; in this case, the waste products are hazardous.
Whitson CM has significant experience generating and managing recycling programs. Establishment of a program and its goals is only the first step in a successful recycling program. We feel that a program must perform and grow in order to be considered successful, therefore performance objectives must be tracked and documented to prove a program is reaching it goals. Furthermore, this program must continue to expand its goals and objectives.
We feel that education is the key to meeting and exceeding the waste/recycling programs’ goals. Why is it important? What are the benefits in minimizing one’s waste output?
Answering these and other questions are very important, but it is also essential to communicate that being responsible does not take that much effort and thought. Whitson CM has used education as a means to communicate permit regulations and more importantly how to remain compliant with all applicable permits.
