Wood Dale, IL — Disaster Kleenup International (DKI), North America''s largest disaster restoration contracting organization, announced today that they are the first organization to have achieved the Green Risk Professional™ designation established by Vale Training Solutions.
DKI made the decision to partner with Vale Training Solutions for Green Risks training in response to the market''s demand for green building. DKI is the leading provider of quality emergency and reconstruction services for commercial, residential and insurance clients throughout North America and the curriculum provided in Vale''s Green Risks courses has allowed DKI to continue at the forefront of industry trends.
"We have pioneered this movement by being the first and only disaster restoration and reconstruction organization to be green risk certified in building reconstruction and restoration services," said Dale Sailer, president of DKI. "DKI understands that in today''s marketplace, individuals and organizations continually strive to do their part in building or creating green environments."
Property owners understand the long term advantages of ''going green'' and insurance carriers have responded with green coverage for new environmentally sustainable construction or renovation following a loss.
Jon McCreath, President of Vale Training Solutions, says "As more carriers offer green coverage, independent adjusters, restoration professionals, and engineers must be adequately trained and possess the expertise and professionalism necessary to understand the makeup of green construction and building products, rating systems and insurance coverage."
McCreath continued, "GRP™ adjusters and restoration professionals provide the expertise necessary when buildings are insured with ''upgrade to green'' endorsements or where restoration/repairs include green measures to replace damaged traditional products"
DKI is the only Green Certified Services Organization that is adequately trained to provide a superior level of knowledge, expertise, professionalism and customer service to property owners, managers, facility directors, and insurers of green buildings. Not only does DKI understand the makeup of green buildings, products used in green buildings, rating systems and insurance coverage as it relates to these elements, but DKI can ensure that if a green building sustains damage, the building will be restored using the most efficient green products in the marketplace.
