NRI recently partnered with Williams Scotsman to promote the concept that contractors can work green while they are building green.
NRI is working with Williams Scotsman to provide exterior graphics that promote the green features of mobile units used as office space on construction sites at Phipps Conservatory in Pittsburgh. While contractors build the Center for Sustainable Landscapes within high sustainability standards, they also work from mobile units that include many environmentally friendly features.
NRI produces wraps for mobile units based on designs created by Williams Scotsman. The wraps promote features of the units such as motion sensor light switches, programmable thermostats, GreenGuard certified insulation, automatic hand dryers, recycling areas, fluorescent bulbs, white roofing, low-E windows, tubular daylighting devices, dual flush systems and low-flow faucets.
"Vehicle wraps are increasingly becoming a popular way to promote business features," said Ron Perkins, NRI Director of Business Development. "Mobile units like this can be on construction sites for years. This is a great way to emphasize not only the sustainability features of the project itself but the commitment to environmentally friendly efforts during the construction process."
NRI is also committed to reducing waste and consumption in its day-to-day activities and reprographics services to clients. The company's online document management services help reduce waste from printed materials, and the company not only recycles its own paper, plastic and glass but uses recycled paper and toner cartridges whenever possible with clients. NRI uses equipment that is Energy Star compliant and lights in the corporate offices include timers and motion sensor switches to reduce power consumption.

"We've combined two business practices that will continue to grow in popularity," Perkins said. "The emphasis on environmentally sustainable construction continues to grow, and more organizations are promoting their efforts with vehicle wraps. We're pleased to support and promote environmentally responsible business activities."
