The health and safety of our staff, clients and properties we work within are priority number one at Clarion Construction. Our safety training program ensures employees are properly trained, understand site specific safety regulations, are equipped with proper PPE and tools in good working order, have a clear understanding of good housekeeping and its role in safety, and know the procedure for handling emergencies for worst-case scenarios. Clarion celebrates exceptional MOD insurance ratings at .85 in 2013, .94 in 2014 and .89 in 2015. We attribute our record to the commitment of our Safety Council who diligently reminds and reinforces Clarion's Safety Program and its initiatives, and to each individual team member who is consistently mindful in his/her everyday duties. Our Safety Council includes Principle and Safety Council President, Ken Johnson; Field Representative, Tom Shimenetto; Office Representative, Vince Martorano; Carpentry Representative, David Meier; Painting Representative, Adam White; and Project Manager Representative and past Safety Council President, Mark Anderson.
Clarion Construction keeps its environmental footprint at a minimum by employing green practices throughout our office, process, and construction sites. We are based in Lombard serving only our immediate surrounding area of Chicagoland. We make every effort to reduce waste and endeavor to be paperless relying heavily on email and web-based document sharing. We encourage use of our reusable glassware and dishes and purchase recycled or green products when possible. In the field, we use the most environmentally friendly materials and supplies available, including Green Promise paints with zero VOCs. Materials we use regularly that are made from recycled goods include drywall and steel, which are sourced from local manufacturers in Illinois, Ohio and Indiana. Clarion works with waste management companies to document quantities of trash and recycling in accordance to LEED-EB certification requirements for Solid Waste Management for Alterations and Additions projects with our overall goal of reusing or recycling as much as possible whether a project is LEED certified or not.
Clarion Construction is a member of the USGBC (U.S. Green Buildings Council) and our team is made up of several LEED accredited professionals who are qualified and committed to ensuring Clarion does its part in forwarding the movement to create an environmentally conscious construction industry.
Clarion Construction is proud to contribute to a number of local charities and give back to the communities we serve. Some of the worthy causes we support are:
