As builders, construction managers, and individuals, we care about the environment. Our team has pro-actively sought to incorporate sustainable, high-performance, and environmentally sound buildings practices into our projects for a number of years. In an on-going effort to keep up with this goal, we utilize the popular LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) professional accreditation process, designed by United States Green Building Council.
Jon F. Swift Construction is proud to be a member of the U.S. Green Building Council at both the National and Local Chapter Levels. We are also a member of the Sarasota County Green Business Partnership, an organization that encourages environmental stewardship and recognizes businesses that make an extra effort to operate in an environmentally responsible manner.
Our team is proficient in sustainable design and construction utilizing green building practices. We have experience in project certification through the United States Green Building Council and offer valuable experience in each specific LEED category to ensure maximum points can be obtained within the LEED rating system. With this valuable team experience, you can be assured that we are committed to optimizing sustainable design and building practices.
We strive to reduce paper correspondence as much as possible; all Jon F. Swift Construction team members utilize a variety of technology in the field to facilitate instant communication and documentation. We also require our subcontractors and materials suppliers to do the same.
