Chapman is not your typical construction firm. It prioritizes sustainable construction management and consulting services. When it was founded in 1984, the firm's founders set out to create something new: a forward-looking company that was free from the traditional ideas about construction.

More than 30 years later, they're still pushing the envelope and expanding the definition of what a construction management firm can be: delivering work of the highest quality under the tightest of schedules, infusing every project with cost-conscious sustainable thinking, taking care of their employees and their families, and supporting the community focused organizations where they live and work. 

Chapman's commitment to sustainability is its guiding philosophy. Their hadquarters are certified LEED Platinum and their rooftop solar array (shown at right) generates more than 87% of their electricity! If you look closely, you can see their fleet of Priuses that are used to transport staff to jobsites. Not pictured is Chapman's high efficiency plumbing fixtures that have helped them cut their water consumption in half. 

Chapman infuses every project, large or small, with sustainable thinking and a host of standard green practices. All Chapman jobsites follow their indoor air quality program, ensuring a clean and healthy environment for occupants both during and after construction. They’ve also standardized on building materials that are high in recycled content and paints, sealants and adhesives that contain low or no volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Additionally, they designed a waste management plan to encourage salvage, reuse, and recycling. By implementing this plan across all jobsites, they’ve been able to divert an average of 79.6% of construction and demolition debris from landfills each year.

More than 50% of their staff have earned their LEED Accredited Professional designations, as have more than 200 of their industry partners. As USGBC and AIA Education Providers, Chapman offers classes and continuing education seminars for clients and partners who wish to maintain their accreditations or simply expand their knowledge of sustainable construction practices.
