S&B James Construction

We Are Green A Company


Salvaged Redwood Flume

S&B James is committed to creating projects that are environmentally friendly. We take our stewardship responsibility very seriously. We incorporate a wide variety of sustainable design features into our projects. We explore green options such as recycled materials, energy efficient lighting, daylighting, and photovoltaic roof panels, with our clients to achieve the most economically feasible sustainable project. We used the same design and construction approach with the renovation of our own office, analyzing the costs and benefits of each green option to decide which would best meet the project design goals and budget.
