High-performance construction goes beyond sustainability to consider how a building influences the performance of the occupants and how efficiently it operates throughout its lifecycle. This is the mantra of Pepper Construction Indiana, an Indianapolis-based firm. Pepper Construction is working in sustainable and high-performance construction as well as lean construction and virtual technologies.
People spend about 90% of their time indoors. From building materials to the amount of available light, every project has an opportunity to improve the environment. Pepper combines best practices from architecture, construction, and the bio-sciences to create a building performance tool that can analyze the ROI (return on investment) of design and constructability approaches, empowering the architect, contractor, and customer to make the best decision for a healthier tomorrow.
Pepper Construction believes that green building starts by providing traditional construction services: documentation, waste management, and recycling. Throughout the years, it added other services to help clients make informed decisions, return on investment analysis, for example. Its high performance and sustainability program is designed to address the life of the building and the lives of those who occupy it. Now, it is shifting to activities that contribute to a healthy future like lifecycle cost analysis, healthy materials, and resiliency planning.
It believes this is the future of construction and recently promoted Calvin Young to manage the company’s high-performance section of its integrated construction services.
