Gaia Construction is also doing its part for the environment .
In fact, the entire team works by mutual agreement to reduce the environmental impacts that a general contractor may have on ecology. Several actions are implemented:
- Using recycled paint
- Priority use of latex paint vs. oil paint, which is much more harmful to the environment
- Using paint without VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- Disposal of empty gallons in recycling
- Bringing disposable materials in one of the Écocentre of the island of Montreal
- Partnership with container companies to environmentally responsible waste
- If possible reuse of building materials that are still in good condition
- Installation of rainwater barrels (used later for irrigation of gardens)
- Reusable canvas
