We hear that question a lot. Whether it’s from fellow business owners, friends or someone who’s curious about something on their property, it’s hard for most folks to get a handle on what it is we do. Let’s answer that pressing question!
GreenWorks is a business headquartered in Allenwood, which is located in beautiful Monmouth County, New Jersey. We are Jersey natives and proud of our Garden State roots! We are an “environmental services” firm with three main areas of focus.
1. Green Design and Build – If you’ve heard about green buildings, then you’re familiar with Green Design and Build. Or, if you have a backyard, then you’re familiar with Green Design and Build. Whether it’s buildings or backyards, GreenWorks uses natural materials, a holistic approach and scientific analysis to better serve people as they interact in their natural or built environments. From healthy, sustainable buildings to backyards that “just make sense” for their owners, we put people in their environments in a way that works for them…and for the environment.
2. Environmental Science – This is where things get technical. Basically, if a residential, commercial or public property has or could have environmental contamination, threatened or endangered species, coastal or wetlands issues, then we get the call. Usually, this part of our business works closely with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. It could be a permit for a coastal development, cleanup of contaminated soils or groundwater, or dealing with any of the myriad environmental issues that can occur when buying, selling, improving or developing property in New Jersey. Bottom line, if it involves environmental regulators at the local, county or state level, it involves GreenWorks’ Environmental Science division.
3. Land Planning – If it’s time to grow, then you’re likely dealing with some Land Planning issues. This GreenWorks’ division focuses on sustainable communities, ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) compliance issues, smart growth, subdivisions and site development plans. This area of focus also involves working with government regulators on a regular basis. Land Planning means planning for growth and that means growing in a way that ensures regulatory compliance and respects the environment.
Each of our divisions overlaps with the others. Our experience and background comes into account across all our projects – whether it’s a backyard, community park, site cleanup or anything else involving the environment, we call upon our team of experts to provide smart, sustainable solutions for business owners, businesses and elected officials every day.
So, that’s a look into what GreenWorks Environmental is all about. We promise you’ll learn a lot more about us (and the environment!) by following GreenWorks on Twitter or, if you think you may fall into one of the categories above, give us a call (732-223-2073) and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
