Green Initiatives

Strickland Construction’s commitment to creative problem solving has guided us toward green initiatives. Simply put, green building is smart building. We work hard to find ways to use recycled, maintenance-free and energy-efficient products that are also aesthetically pleasing and affordable. It’s a win-win: We are lessening our impact on the environment, while also delivering quality construction to customers that will cost them less money to heat, cool and maintain through the years to come.

Strickland Construction is well known for its green building in Greensburg, Kansas. On May 4, 2007 a level-F5 tornado ripped through Greensburg, destroying 95 percent of the town. Confronted with a huge rebuilding project, the city committed itself to becoming a "green" town and rebuilding according to LEED Silver standards. Strickland Construction immediately stepped in to help. Using in-kind services and donations, we completed the first reconstruction project on Main Street, built to LEED Silver standards: The Care and Share Thrift Shop and Food Pantry. Strickland’s rebuilding didn’t stop there. The company stayed in Greenburg for the next 3 years, also rebuilding the Teen Center for the South Central Kansas Youth for Christ.
