SUSTAINABLE DESIGN

Design for People + Planet

By designing our buildings and our communities to be healthy, equitable, and resilient, we work towards a world that is both sustainable and regenerative. We are dedicated to educating and advocating for the many design possibilities by making the business case for sustainable design, administering green building certifications as goals align, and communicating the impact of buildings on people and the planet.

Administration for Green Building Certifications

Guiding our clients to achieve any level of sustainable design you desire including third-party certifications such as, LEED, WELL, and Living Building Challenge to name a few.

Sustainability Consulting

Customizing sustainable design frameworks to fit the goals of the project and guide our clients on the best investments for their money.

Health + Wellness Design

Designing for occupant health and well-being are integrated and considered in every aspect of the project by incorporating daylighting analysis, good lighting design, and biophilic design. We work to enhance indoor air quality, thermal comfort, and acoustic quality for a built environment that reduces stress while increasing comfort, performance, and sleep.

High-Performance Design

Engaging in integrative design charrettes, enables us to more efficiently optimize passive heating and cooling strategies, more efficient lighting systems, and improved building envelopes. All of this is made possible through the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM), which enables parametric thinking and collaboration among all of the project team members.

Material Research + Analysis

Material selection and specifications are critical to creating a healthy indoor environment for occupants. The materials chosen also influence carbon emissions and contribute to a building’s embodied carbon footprint because of their location, extraction methods, and transportation from cradle to grave.
