Tell us about a sustainability project or initiative that your business is currently working on or has recently completed. 

Drummond Carpenter focuses on sustainable water management. Our favorite projects are where we work with the community to conceptualize their vision for a greener future and then design/build that vision. For example, we work with local watershed councils and municipalities to design and construct rain gardens to improve watershed health.
