February GICC Membership Luncheon Recap

The Greater Irondale Chamber welcomed Robbie Cather, Senior Project Manager at Stewart Perry Construction, as our guest speaker at the membership luncheon last week. (Check out photos here.)

2015 02 12 13.18.31Robbie's fascinating and informative presentation included a description of the latest techniques businesses are using - such as daylight harvesting, advanced insulation, elevator energy regeneration, and rainwater recapturing - that not only help the environment but improve businesses' bottom line.  Many businesses struggle to adopt more advanced environment-friendly practices, particularly in construction, until it can be demonstrated that, long term, it will be cost effective.  Some of the measures that large corporations such as Walmart and Target use are very expensive but save millions of dollars in the long run.

The corporate campus of Stewart Perry Construction, located on Overton Road in Irondale, applies many of the construction practices the company champions.  Check out a virtual tour of their beautiful campus here.
