Green Building

Wohlsen believes in sustainability. It is a simple idea with a big impact. As a leader in green construction, we believe that if we reduce our energy, our waste stream and our depletion of natural resources, we can help future generations live better. We always welcome opportunities to work with clients that feel the same way.

Our team knows what it takes to execute a green construction or LEED® Green Building project – over 20 Wohlsen employees have professional green credentials.

Certifications & Memberships
Wohlsen holds numerous certifications and memberships in the green construction and sustainability category. We are well-equipped to help you navigate all aspects of the green building process:

  • Green Plus Certification – Wohlsen was the third company in PA to receive this status
  • Certified Green Contractor – Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC)
  • United States Green Building Council (USGBC)
  • USGBC Central PA Chapter
  • Delaware Valley Green Building Council (DVGBC)

Awards & Honors
We do not set out to earn industry awards when we break ground on a construction project, but when we get recognized by our peers, it’s pretty special. A few of the green building honors that we have received include:

  • North American Sustainable Enterprise Award – recognizes enterprises for advancing triple-bottom-line sustainability
  • Top 100 Green Contractors – ranked by Engineering News-Record (2012)
