Sustainability

Sonax Projects & Consulting is committed to sustainable business practices with a social and ecological focus for our civil engineering work. We use sustainable design and engineering to minimize environmental impact and we understand the necessity to engineer infrastructure that lasts.

As increasing population density creates the need to build more, develop more, and transport more, our environment is under continued stress and impact.  Sonax Projects & Consulting is dedicated to developing and implementing sustainable practices and technologies that minimize the impact on our environment.

Understanding the need to develop sustainable or green engineering (focused on ecological and environmental impacts) practices and processes is a primary initiative for our training and development programs.  We recognize that growth cannot come at the risk to resources and ecology.  We are dedicated to the principles of waste minimization, corporate social responsibility, environmental stewardship and impact, and leadership in energy and environment design (LEED).
