Constructing High Performance Buildings that Achieve LEED Certification.


LEED Certification is the gold standard for high performance buildings that are efficient, cost-effective, healthier, and better for the environment. If your project plans include LEED Certification and green building technology, the ECI Sustainability team can assist in meeting your Green objectives. Supporting the US Green Building Council efforts for sustainable design and building practices, many of our projects have achieved Silver LEED Certification as well as green building certifications meeting Austin Green Building and Circle C development standards.

Building with Care in Environmentally Sensitive Areas.


The Central Texas region is full of environmentally sensitive recharge zones. Building in these areas takes extra care and attention to housekeeping. Routinely working in the Edwards Aquifer watershed regions, ECI proactively meets with all governing parties to identify the overall parameters. A detailed system for monitoring the site is implemented as ‘early stage’ preparation. Additionally, sub-contractors who have the same like‐minded desire to maintain a clean site are identified for the project.

Over the years I've had the opportunity to work with many different general contractors. Working with Chris, Michael and the ECI team has always been an enjoyable experience. Their thoughtfulness for detail and craft, management tactics and professionalism at all levels of the construction process has been an absolute pleasure. I have seen it and my clients have seen it as well ... and that is a true testament to their work and care.

Albert Enterprises

Synergistic partnerships don’t come along very often.  Over the past three years, we have been truly blessed to find a group of folks that not only THINK and WORK like us, but TRUST like us.  Success comes when you find PARTNERS in this business that have the same VALUES and PRINCIPLES as your own TEAM.  The results are magical.  Chris and the wonderful TEAM at ECI have been that Fairy Dust for Albert Enterprises and Albert Restaurant Group.  We couldn’t do what we do in Central and South Texas without them.  Keep up the great work!
