Every day, on every job, Flatiron strives to minimize the environmental impacts of its operations through consistent improvements that address environmental management and performance.
We continually strive to provide greener solutions for our clients. Working within an environmental framework is critical to the successful delivery of projects. Flatiron has proven our ability to put sustainability at the forefront of our construction projects, and employs many sustainable strategies as part of our everyday practices.
Flatiron regularly utilizes site recycling and waste management programs, strives for earthwork balance on projects, and reuses existing pavement sections as the sub-base for new pavement sections. Additionally, a large amount of our off-road equipment is capable of running on biodiesel, reducing fossil fuel consumption.
We have proven experience with:
- Regulatory requirements and reporting
- Fuel handling and spill prevention
- Erosion and sediment control
- Soil salvage and handling protocols
- Water quality monitoring, reporting and management
- Wildlife management
Flatiron projects are consistently recognized for environmental excellence. Flatiron’s equipment fleet has also attained a Platinum-Level Green Fleet certification from the Association of Equipment Management Professionals.
