by Karen Vahling, Island Green Building Association
Whether you are a property owner, contractor, construction worker, or heavy equipment operator, the way you build in the Virgin Islands affects everyone and everything that calls these islands home. Heavy equipment operators and contractors play a vital role not only in constructing buildings, but also in protecting the environment and preserving the natural beauty of our islands.
Your work is your signature: a symbol of your craftsmanship that will last beyond the scope of the job. On our islands, going green is more than just a fad – it’s a necessity in order to safeguard what we value most. And working green is about doing more with less and preserving the very amenities people seek.
