With 6 LEED Accredited Professionals on staff, 30 SWPPP (Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan) Certified team members and an extensive portfolio of work that incorporates sustainable initiatives, ICI upholds a strong commitment to building “green.”
Demolition, Construction Waste Management and Energy Conservation
ICI’s portfolio includes the first Volvo Dealership in the nation to achieve LEED Silver Certification. The dealership incorporates a number of unique features, including wind turbines, a rain water harvesting system, solar panels, and an “eco-garden.” During construction, ICI implemented a comprehensive Construction Waste Management Program and diverted 95% of all construction debris from the waste stream.
ICI recently completed Burbank SD 111’s new Luther Burbank Elementary School. Sustainable elements are infused throughout the facility, from spaces filled with natural light, to a high-performance geothermal mechanical system. Combined, these features reduce operating costs, provide a healthy, productive academic environment and encourage environmental literacy. Geothermal mechanical systems, and daylighting combined with advanced lighting controls lead to a significant reduction in energy use.
ICI has completed numerous projects for Walmart. The Walmart Corporation goes to great lengths to incorporate “green” elements into their retail stores. Through our experience with Walmart, we have been involved in the purchasing, coordination and installation of sustainable elements and have been able to integrate them into projects in a variety of markets.
Walmart requires reduced waste on their construction projects, whereby materials are separated and recycled with a stated goal of a zero percent flow to landfills. Another green initiative Walmart adheres to is SWPPP Certification for all field superintendents and project managers. Their SWPPP guarantees environmental compliance with the EPA and also incorporates procedures for air quality control.
ICI was contracted by Walmart for a new store and the site was contaminated by the former land owners; a concrete products manufacturing company. The manufacturer produced precast concrete and abandoned much of its discards on site. ICI’s preconstruction testing revealed the buried concrete structures throughout the site. To solve the issue, ICI set up a temporary concrete crushing plant to turn the abandoned structures and other excavated materials into suitable landfill. Over 19,221 cubic yards of suitable fill material were crushed and reused on site. ICI also recycled 32.84 tons of wood and 10.68 tons of metal on the project.
