Green building is good for the environment. It is energy efficient, which reduces the need to burn fossil fuels and helps fight climate change – one of society’s most pressing environmental issues. It also makes efficient use of water and other resources, minimizes pollution and waste, and reduces overall environmental impact.
Green buildings cost less to operate because, among other things, they use less energy and water, and require less maintenance. They have better indoor air quality because they minimize chemicals, mold and other harmful substances. These projects also have excellent resale value because green buildings are quality buildings and they are built to last.
Building green demonstrates your commitment to sustainability and gives your company a competitive advantage in the market. There is also peace of mind in knowing that the structures we build are better for the environment, healthier for occupants, and save money over the long term.

Despite my knowing that SC Barker had clients all over town I always felt like I was their only customer. For this and many other reasons, I can give S.C. Barker Construction my unqualified endorsement and recommendation.
Spinoso Real Estate Group, General Manager
The successful completion of the construction of this facility was accomplished with a sophisticated network of quality subcontractors, organized project management, committed to quality control, and dedication to excellent results.
Nobles Director of Facilities and Maintenance, Valdosta City Schools
We have chosen over the years, to do all our projects with SCBCC as a Design-Build relationship. We have found great value in this relationship through their process of preconstruction/design, to construct our facilities, and through the warranty period.
After their assistance in the budgeting of the project, I felt like it was in my best interest to fast-tracking the project to have SCBCC do the project with a Cost-Plus approach. I knew from my previous experience with SCBCC I could trust them in a Cost-Plus approach and that they would make decisions regarding budget as if it was their own money.

Kevin and his staff have been honest and fair in our dealings and have always been interested in the successful and satisfactory completion of the job. Without and reservation, I can highly recommend S.C. Barker Construction Company for your next job.
It was indeed a pleasure to work with the S.C. Barker Construction Company and their project staff. Without hesitation, we would again welcome the opportunity to work with this company in the future.
