CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT Strategies and Techniques

Our coastal land represents only 17% of the U.S. but is home to over 50% of the population. Development contributes to the annual loss of nearly 20,000 acres of coastal habitat. We believe that linking proven and innovative techniques  can reduce stress on coastal ecosystems. 

People and resources need each other to survive. Deterioration of native habitat leads to reduction in the coastal economy. Sustainable alternatives should always be explored in coastal resources. By 2025, it has been predicted that up to 25% of our watersheds will be impervious.

Coastal Construction incorporates green building.

DEMOLITION MANAGEMENT

Managed demolition saves money and resources. Demolition does not touch the earth lightly. Collaboration with contractors and regulators can develop innovative protocols that decrease impacts and increase cost benefits.

Concrete Management

When using concrete near wetland resources, easy techniques are implemented to protect ground water. Concrete and rinse water characteristics can create nutrient over loading. This publication includes green building techniques that protect ground water quality.

MANAGING STORM WATER

Storm water is rain, falling on impervious surfaces and directed down slope by gravity, as "sheet flow". When sheet flow collects in gutters and down spouts, it becomes a point source. Storm water management is the strategy of percolating point sources into ground water.  Both sheet flow and point sources can be managed this way, with various strategies.
