A leader in sustainable building practices, Bette & Cring takes pride in employing environmental responsibility in our building projects. Now, more than ever, high-performance buildings, energy efficiency, renewable and alternative energies, energy management systems and environmental stewardship is pertinent to the development of new facilities and retrofitting existing buildings. From start to finish, and through the entire LEED certification process, we have the expertise and ability necessary to achieve your sustainability goals.


For these and other projects, our green construction services include:

  • Concept development and sustainable strategies
  • Cost/benefit analysis
  • Sourcing local materials
  • Reducing construction waste
  • Cogeneration and alternative energy strategies


Bette & Cring understands the benefits – both environmental and fiscal – of sustainable design and construction. We offer a solid background in meeting LEED criteria. Among our many certified LEED Projects, we are proud to have constructed a LEED Platinum-certified building (the adaptive reuse of a historic building, circa 1865, to create a dynamic corporate headquarters) under the guidelines for New Construction (NC 2.2) – the fifth building to reach this prestigious level in New York State.

Over the past decade, Bette & Cring has made a commitment to promoting sustainability in our public and private sector projects. The firm has a staff that includes several LEED accredited professionals and supports continuing education for our team members to keep current on sustainable technology and innovations.
