Sustainability: Since renewable energy is crucial to our future, we’re proud to say that we’ve played a key role in many solar and wind projects developed in the Northeast. Energy providers and general contractors choose us for their renewable projects because we can do everything from clearing and grubbing to pioneering roads and precise finishing. Sargent’s ability to value-engineer on-the-fly for larger projects results in significant cost savings for owners.
