Building Sustainably (And Profitably) with CEO David Sessions of Willis Smith Construction

Working sustainably isn’t just good for the planet, it’s good for business. That lesson was re-iterated for us on our third stop of the Creative Animal Tour in Sarasota, Florida at Willis Smith Construction.

This open house location threw some people for a loop at first, however, our goal is to shine a spotlight on people, places, and organizations who are fine examples of how to live, work, and play – more sustainably. Willis Smith Construction is doing just that.

Upon completion, their corporate headquarters received a high gold ranking by USGBC, otherwise known as the U.S. Green Building Council. Their LEED Certification process (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rates the environmental sustainability of a given building based on its’ materials, water and energy efficiency, and indoor environmental quality. To learn more about what goes into LEED Certification, check out this website:

CEO, David Sessions. He was able to explain what went into the construction of the building in an in-depth and practical way. We hope you are inspired by Willis Smith Construction and CEO David Sessions. If you are in Florida and are thinking about building a LEED certified building, check them out here:
