With a long reputation as the region’s leading expert in high-performance green home builders, it’s no surprise that Hibbs General Contracting will put a special focus on green building practices for commercial construction.
“Experts believe that the building sector is the largest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. Nearly 75% of commercial buildings are 20 years or older and would benefit from tremendously from retrofitting renovations to reduce their emissions and energy usage,” said Matt Belcher, Vice President of Hibbs General Contracting. To that end, Hibbs General Contracting will offer:
• Provide Commercial retrofitting services
• Offer energy efficient steel building options, and
• Implement high-performance building practices in construction projects

I look forward to leaving a mark on our community, as a female leader in this business,” said Jan Hibbs.
