Meeting and Exceeding Sustainable Design & Construction Requirements in Sedona, AZ
Tourism is the foundation of the local economy in Sedona, generating 75% of the city’s revenue. In an effort to support increased visitation while protecting the stunning natural landscape from potential tourism-related impacts, the City of Sedona partnered with the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC), the world’s leading standard-setting body for sustainability of tourism operations and destination development, to undertake a destination assessment and develop initiatives toward sustainable tourism. This includes providing optional guidance to area businesses, organizations, contractors, and residents toward the support of environmental quality, residential quality of life, a vibrant economy, and positive visitor experiences.
In the same way that Sedona businesses and residents are committed to best-in-class destination development practices, Loven Contracting is committed to meeting the needs of our Sedona-based clients. Our team has extensive experience meeting and exceeding the requirements of the Design Review, Engineering and Administrative Manual, and our work on Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park is a great example of this expertise and diligence. To reduce the impact on the surrounding neighborhoods and high-volume adjacent tourist areas, Loven Contracting addressed noise pollution and soil upheaval concerns through project scheduling and a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) to protect local water resources.
