Thinking Beyond the Building means we believe in sustainability far beyond LEED projects. Pankow is committed to environmentally responsible construction and to be good stewards of the environment, taking a four-pronged approach to sustainable operations:
Most importantly, we have a passion for a sustainable environment for future generations that shows in our volunteer efforts, placing a high value on participation and outreach. Pankow team members hold leadership and board positions in USGBC chapters in Hawaii, Northern California, Los Angeles and San Gabriel Valley and serve on the BOMA Environment Committee. Pankow hosts project tours, regularly provides training and, through the Charles Pankow Foundation, has participated in the development of the CSI GreenFormat Sustainable Product Reporting Guide, which provides open access to completed product data forms for building teams to use when selecting and evaluating products.
We believe that it is our duty to give back to the communities in which we live and work, to engage with the community as a direct reflection on our value of Integrity. Through contributions and volunteerism, Pankow supports education, arts, community improvement and healthcare programs in all our regions. We look for opportunities where we can make the biggest difference, put our builder’s know-how to good use and support our team in their areas of greatest interest.
We also believe in building the future of our industry. Pankow has deep ties to the ACE Mentoring Program and actively engages with numerous university construction and engineering programs.
Pankow places a high value on long-lasting relationships – not only with our clients and collaborators, but foremost, with our employees. We offer a comprehensive program of compensation, wellness and assistance in reaching long-term financial goals around which you and your family can build your future.
