Sustainability

Tweet/Garot is committed to Green Building ideals and the sustainability of both existing buildings and new structures. The sustainable methods we use decrease project costs over the life of the building through reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance costs, improved health of building occupants and increased occupant productivity.

“Mechanical contracting, by its nature, leaves a huge footprint on our natural resources,” said Tweet/Garot CEO Timothy J. Howald. “We're experimenting by trying different things and expanding our knowledge so we continue to be innovative and environmentally responsible. We feel that as one of the largest contracting companies in Wisconsin we have the ability to set the example as it relates to sustainable initiatives and environmental stewardship.”

Sustainable Practices:

• We specify only environmentally friendly refrigerants

• We use propylene glycol on systems that require freeze protection

• We standardized use of low VOC caulks and sealants for piping and ductwork

•We employ shop and job site recycling programs

• We have numerous LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, utilizing their vast green expertise

Internal Sustainability:

In order to stay on the cutting edge of new technologies in the sustainable construction industry, Tweet/Garot has started a Green Team, consisting of employees with various backgrounds and specialties throughout the company. The team will focus on company-wide green initiatives to keep Tweet/Garot a truly sustainable place to work. For a list of current Green Team initiatives, please click here.
