SUSTAINABILITY SOLUTIONS: 

 

By delivering highly complex projects in some of the most challenging environments across the United States, Robey Construction is contributing to the evolution of the construction industry and to the quality of life for people in multiple counties.

For well over sixty years of project experience spanning the country.

We have delivered highly complex projects, in some of the most challenging environments, contributing to the evolution of the construction industry, the job skills, and the economic well-being of people on multiple states. We use a full-spectrum approach to develop, design, build, operate, and decommission projects. Environmental, social, economic, and quality factors are integrated into our projects to promote positive, lasting effects from our projects and operations.

“INNOVATIVE ENGINEERING AND DESIGN “

Robey Construction uses technology and data analytics to deliver the next generation of construction and engineering projects. This enables us to identify the best design alternatives and evaluate measures to enhance the life cycle associated with design elements.  Alternative analysis can include measures to minimize carbon emissions, protect and conserve natural resources, protect human well-being, and promote resilience against climate changes. Robey Construction has a core of engineers trained in sustainability, with credentials including LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology).

“LOCAL CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT”

Robey Construction brings an optimize-and-maximize approach when beginning work in a particular county or state, tailoring the approach to local conditions and concerns. We identify clusters of existing capacities to support a new project, including skilled craft workers, vocational training institutions, food and hospitality, and local equipment and technology. We then conduct customized programs that maximize the participation of local workers and suppliers in construction work, thereby building experience and enhancing local skills. Because every context is unique, we implement specialty programs, such as workshops to prepare small businesses for post-construction work, apprenticeship programs to advance high-potential workers, indigenous workforce development, and mentoring future civil servants to operate and manage projects. These efforts modernize workforces and help small businesses to be competitive in future opportunities—whether with Robey Construction or other projects.

“SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT AND CONSTRUCTION”

We gear our construction techniques and country procurement processes to use recycled and local materials, reduce energy consumption, and mitigate greenhouse-gas emissions. To improve the sustainability and quality of our projects, we use building information modeling (BIM), a 3D imaging and data analytics tool to support decision-making on design and construction alternatives. We also operate a number of module yards across the country for material fabrication in controlled settings, helping to reduce waste, landfill impacts, and other environmental effects at project sites and in host communities.

“FACILITIES OPERATION AND MANAGEMENT”

Robey Construction helps operate and maintain major national facilities and government laboratories. This includes a range of management solutions for our government customers, including processes for energy efficiency, water conservation, sustainable procurement, and renewable energy use.

“RENEWABLE ENERGY”

To meet the growing demand for clean, reliable, and affordable energy, Robey Construction designs and constructs some of the state largest projects for some of the world’s biggest land owners & real estate services and investment corporations. In addition, we finance solutions that catalyze the development of new tenant improvement projects by helping to mobilize additional public and private resources for energy-related projects as well.

“RISH MANGEMENT”

Issues can arise during a project that trigger immediate and long-term impacts on customers and communities, as well as affect the quality of project delivery. Robey Construction implements three interrelated processes to promote the positive effects of a project during construction and operations: using risk assessment and management disciplines to identify issues, conducting stakeholder engagement, and making strategic social investments in the community.

“SITE MANAGEMENT”

In many parts of the country, Robey Construction projects can attract significant numbers of workers, especially in areas where a project is a rare opportunity for employment. Our early planning and systematic approach to establishing the labor force helps to avoid the effects of unmanaged workforce influx, which can trigger conflict and other socioeconomic tensions locally or regionally. Robey Construction workforce and camp management program is based on consultation with our customer, government authorities, our workforce, and our communities. This process enables us to select the optimal site location and identify community issues, demographics, and cultures to avoid potential conflicts while maximizing the camp’s positive effects on host communities.

“PERFORMANCE STANDARDS ALIGNMENT”

Concurrent with increasing regulatory requirements, there is a growing constellation of sustainability institutions shaping our customers’ markets globally. Because our policies, processes, and practices are consistent with key state standards, we help our customers meet and exceed any specific performance requirements, including those of the International Finance Corporation, the Equator Principles, Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. In addition, in every state and on every project, we supplement existing environmental, safety, and health regulations with additional best practices and Robey Construction requirements, which commonly enhance local knowledge and help improve local standards.
