Sustainability Long before it was considered a catch-phrase or best practice, HGC practiced sustainability. Our founder Richard Huseman preserved materials discarded from one project to use whenever possible on another. This helped control costs for the company and clients. Explore our other Commitments. HGC’s Cincinnati headquarters sets an example to other businesses looking for energy and cost savings through sustainability. In renovating our offices, we re-purposed discarded materials to create a stunning, award-winning environment. We have LEED-certified experts in-house who know how to discover creative solutions to deliver a green final product that fits the client’s budget. Our experience in achieving sustainability encompasses a variety of markets, from commercial buildings to schools, zoos to apartment complexes, storage facilities to luxury hotels. We believe that building for the future makes the world a better place.
