Stepping Lightly into the Environment
Sustainable design techniques are considered for all our architecture projects, so our clients and communities enjoy the benefits of a low-impact environmental footprint. With LEED design practices at the forefront of everything we do, the client enjoys the benefits of reduced heating and cooling costs, reduced maintenance, conservation of water, increase indoor air quality, and the use of the structure's natural light. Sustainability is ingrained into our business philosophy and is utilized in all of our designs.
We are LEED certified but don't use LEED building techniques as an add-on to our architectural services, we automatically incorporate LEED and sustainable design into everything we do. We do not rely on LEED consultants to evaluate our architectural projects as these skills are cultivated by all our team members. Whether it's a library, an office building, a school, government facility or any other project, we incorporate green design techniques and natural materials to enhance the human experience while reducing environmental impact.
It's clear that being more ecologically responsible is a growing trend in the architectural and building industries. We take this as an obligation to lead the way by upholding responsible sustainability practices that support the environment, our clients, and the communities that we enhance.
Sustainable design best practices include:
- Minimize negative impacts on indoor air quality
- Use of sustainable building materials with a focus on environmentally friendly manufacturing and recycled goods
- Maximize the health, productivity and general well-being of building users
- Utilize technology to significantly reduce energy consumption and operational costs
