sustainable def.A sustainable project does not necessarily follow a certification or rating system. At A&P, we define sustainablein terms of building components that reduce life cycle costs, the end goal of projects themselves, our ownbusiness practices and our impact on the local community. To us, sustainable is simply - using resources to meetcurrent needs, while lessening the impact on the environment for future generations. This can be a state-of-the-artLEED Platinum facility or a neighborhood revitalization project.As one of the nation’s leading green builders, Adolfson & Peterson Construction has over 130 LEED accreditedprofessionals on staff and 40 LEED certified or registered projects of various levels completed or underway.While we are experts in green building -- sustainable is much more than building green. It defines ourbusiness practices with a LEED Gold office building, hybrid vehicles in the fleet, in-house carbon footprintreduction programs, and job site recycling on all sites, among other initiatives. The term sustainable trulyresonates throughout our organization as an underlying principle in all we do.It even defines the markets in which we excel at delivering projects... ne i ghbo r h o o d rev ita lization com m e rcia l red eve l o p me n t URB AN RENEWAL a d a p t ive re u s e b rownfield redevelopment su st a in ab le def . l i ght-rai l S U S TA I NA BL E h e a l t h & we l l n e s s T RANSIT-ORI ENTED DEVELOPMENT C OM M U N IT Y-B AS ED e du c a t i o n mi s s i o n - b a s ed st u den t h o u s ing m ixed-use re c re a t i o n multi-famil y
neighborhood revitalization M atthew H enson HOPE VI Phoenix, Arizona The Matthew Henson HOPE VI development (Henson Village) exemplifies our desire to build sustainable communities. The development, now home to nearly 600 families, was a mixed- financed neighborhood revitalization project using a federal HOPE VI grant program, private equity raised from low- income housing tax-credits and a FHA insured mortgage to revitalize a former public housing site in the Matthew Henson neighborhood of Central Phoenix. Matthew Henson Apartments, Senior Living at Matthew Henson, the Vernell Coleman Youth Center, and the Community Training & Education Center comprise the new Henson Village. The development is a mixed-income community with housing available to families of various incomes (public housing, tax credit and market-rate). The new mix of housing types includes single-family detached homes, multi-family garden apartments, duplex townhouses and a senior complex. Various green building features have been integrated into the community providing great environmental, economic, and social benefits.u rb an re n ewa l During construction, A&P exceeded all MBE / WBE and Section 3 utilization goals on the project (with up to 40% of the workforce at times being from within the community). A&P also contributed to the surrounding community by participating in the Rebuilding Together event, supporting the local Valley Christian Center and Boys & Girls Club, and with donations to the new youth center.

commercial redevelopment T arget T ucson N orth Tucson, Arizona The new Super Target in north Tucson presented a unique opportunity to utilize the existing strip center (to be demolished) for emergency training. In partnership with Target, A&P invited fire personnel from the surrounding community to perform training for a big box emergency at the vacated Target store. A&P prepared the building for training and provided lunch for over 200 fire personnel as they conducted practice drills over a two day period. A&P has completed over 100 projects for Target Corporation to date from ground-up new stores to complex renovations of operational stores. The Tucson North location presented a number of challenges, including a condensed schedule and other retailers in close proximity remaining open during construction. The team delivered the new 225,000 square foot Super Target in less than half the time a typical Super Target takes to complete. u rba n re n ewal “This practice provided our personnel a better perspective on how to handle a big boxemergency. I thank you for your generosity notonly to the Tucson Fire Department, but to the entire Tucson community.” - Patrick T. Kelly, Fire Chief City of Tucson

wh o we a re more than what we do, it’s who we are The surrounding community is a key project component that is often overlooked. Community involvement is a cornerstone at A&P, transcending to even the project level. Whether it is simply taking the time to keep the community informed on progress or donating time and resources to local causes, our culture of giving back is ingrained in all of our employees. Contributing to the community at all levels is the right thing to do. Adolfson & Peterson Construction gives back to the community at both the national and local levels. Through our national corporate giving initiatives, the George & Maya Adolfson Foundation and the WE CARE Fund, A&P donates 10% of our pre- tax profits to fund charitable endeavors across the country. At the local level, we contribute to numerous charitable organizations and support project-specific causes (like donating labor and time to paint the Valley Christian Center near the Matthew Henson neighborhood revitalization project). Beyond the 10% pre-tax profit contributions at the corporate level, A&P has donated over one million dollars directly to local communities in Arizona over the years. In addition, we actively support employees as they donate thousands of hours of their time, talent and energy to local causes.
