Nibbi Green/High Performance

As part of the team that built The Exploratorium, a LEED® Platinum, net zero energy facility (perhaps the largest, net-zero energy museum of its size in the world, Nibbi has first-hand experience with projects that have ambitious sustainability and renewable energy goals.

Nibbi’s professional staff (many of which are LEED®-Accredited Professionals and/or Certified Green Building Professionals) has the passion and experience to maximize our clients’ green efforts. At the beginning of every job, we hold a LEED®/Green charette with the client and/or architect to review sustainability goals and to seek opportunities to drive greater value.

We put sustainable construction initiatives into practice whether a project is targeting LEED® certification or not.  These initiatives may include:

  • Setting aggressive, cost-effective sustainability goals and action plans
  • Diverting more than 75% of construction waste
  • Using recycled-content materials whenever sensible
  • Maximizing regional and rapidly renewing materials
  • Using certified wood
  • Using bio-diesel-powered equipment
  • Using low-emitting adhesives, carpet, coatings, composite wood, paint and sealants
  • Establishing and adhering to an Indoor Air Quality management plan
  • MEP start-up and commissioning

Nibbi’s internal committee NibbiGreen, ensures that everything we do as a company, both in the field and in our offices, supports current best practices in sustainable construction and business operations.
