A Green Future
As one extensive ecosystem, we all have to work together to make our planet greener, more sustainable, and safer for everyone. Specifically, Southland, as a MEP building systems firm and leader in the green building movement, upholds a broad commitment to sustainability throughout our business practices.
We’ve continuously provided cost-effective, energy-efficient mechanical solutions for over 70 years. Recognizing the growing global concern for energy conservation savings and the large impact of reducing energy consumption in facilities, Southland focuses on energy service solutions and sustainability as one of our core offerings.
As both a service provider and a corporate organization, our goal is to responsibly conserve natural resources and seek ways to eliminate waste from everything that we do.
Climate Change & Energy Awareness
With the ever-growing shift toward energy awareness and focus on climate change, Southland continually examines how our clients can apply energy management techniques to their facilities. By leveraging our design-build-maintain model, we integrate energy efficiency and U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) standards into both new construction and retrofit/renovation projects.
Sustainable Services & Resources
With in-house LEED-accredited personnel and certified energy managers, Southland can evaluate and design a variety of solutions to suit specific energy needs. Whether an owner is trying to reduce energy costs, achieve LEED or Energy Star compliance, or perform energy usage upgrades that will qualify for tax incentives or rebates, we will identify the ideal energy solutions to achieve sustainability beyond just project goals.
Additionally, Southland has participated and successfully completed projects with net zero energy goals.
What do we do?
Sustainability is woven into our business practices and each team works to create sustainable designs through Lean methods. From energy savings, to striving to reduce greenhouse emissions, solid and water waste management, and packaging efforts, Southland drives sustainability through action.
It’s not just about Southland, our clients, and partners — it’s about the communities we work in and serve too. With an emphasis on bettering our surroundings and those around us, we support a variety of charitable organizations across the country. Southland also offers key educational programs to develop employees at all stages of employment and all functions across the company.
Together, we can create a diverse, inclusive, sustainable, and green future.
