MORE THAN A PLAQUE
Sustainability is more than a plaque on a wall. Real sustainable design should be working for you, helping you achieve goals for your building, your budget and your environment. With this in mind, our team strives to create sensible sustainability solutions in each of your projects, whether seeking certification or not, and the solutions should make sense for you.
LEED® AND BEYOND
Whether it's LEED®, Energy Star, CHPS, Green Globes, Building EQ or any other standard of green building that you seek, or you simply want longevity and environmentally responsible design, our team will implement solutions according to your requirements. While design certainly doesn’t have to follow LEED® to be sustainable, it is arguably the current gold standard for sustainable design. As such, our many LEED® accredited staff and 50+ LEED® designed and certified projects since the program’s earliest publication are evidence of our commitment to the environment.
