Sellen is committed to the long-term health of our community and the global ecosystem.
As a leading general contractor in the Pacific Northwest for nearly 80 years, Sellen is committed to building our community sustainably, minimizing impacts to future generations, and contributing to a positive legacy in the built environment. We have pushed industry boundaries and advocated for sustainable practices for more than 25 years.
The spaces we build today are more complex than ever, and we are committed to helping our clients and design partners pursue and achieve progressive sustainability goals. Our in-house team provides comprehensive sustainability consulting services for our clients. We leverage our expertise during the earliest stages of a project to offer a level of oversight and integration that is not possible with external consultants.
Sellen recently published our inaugural Sustainability Report. Read the full report here for more information on how we’re helping to build a more sustainable construction industry.
Sustainability consulting services include:
- Embodied Carbon: We guide our clients through the process of measuring and reducing embodied carbon for in-progress and upcoming construction projects. Our team analyzes materials, methods, budget, and schedule through a sustainability lens to help owners and architects make informed decisions that minimize environmental impacts.
- Strategic Corporate Sustainability Planning: Sellen assists in the evaluation and definition of corporate sustainability goals and implementation strategies. We align our clients’ company values and priorities relative to industry standards. Whether your organization has a well-established sustainability ethos or you’re just getting started on your journey, Sellen’s team will help you get to the next level.
- Sustainability Certification Management: We partner with our clients to oversee each step of the certification process, and our team is adept at navigating the requirements of LEED, Living Building Challenge, Net Zero Carbon, and other certifications.
Director of Sustainability Angi Rivera brings more than 20 years of hands-on experience and partners with our clients to deliver innovative projects that achieve certification goals and reduce embodied carbon compared to industry averages.
