Environment

Whenever possible, QBC goes “green” in its engineering operations. Past efforts have included:

  • Global Sustainability Assessment System (GSAS), formerly "QSAS" training programs for all project managers
  • Latest technologies in efficient earthworks and dust controls
  • On-site waste segregation and recycling
  • Purchasing of recycled traffic barriers
  • Use of alternative energies when possible
  • Sustainable landscaping options that use indigenous florae to preserve local biodiversity and reduce the need for high levels of water in maintenance
  • Eco-Stewardship in Construction, as dust control is a central environment issue in this region’s climate, QBC employs various dust control measures during all applicable construction work.
