Green design principles and standards are inherent in the design of our projects. We believe that there is a natural overlap where tradition and dedication to craftsmanship merge with 21st century technology and materials to create sustainable buildings and environments for our clients without compromising quality.
With Certified Green Building and LEED Accredited Professionals in our office, we have a wealth of green design knowledge and are able to incorporate building strategies and practices into our projects which are increasingly becoming required by many local building codes, which result in buildings that perform well beyond accepted minimum standards.
Creating a healthy and comfortable environment for our clients is a top priority. To this end, we design our buildings to have exceptional indoor air quality with reduced pollutants, select only materials and finishes that release fewer harmful compounds into the building over time, and ensure that natural daylight and ventilation are incorporated throughout the building.
By utilizing time-tested strategies such as passive solar heating and shading in coordination with modern, energy-efficient systems and appliances, we are able to create high-performance buildings that reduce both energy demands and the costs of heating and cooling a structure.
We challenge ourselves to do better than the status quo when it comes to sustainable and responsible design. Not only do our clients benefit from our efforts, but our surroundings and future generations do as well. Less strain on natural resources, smarter material consumption and better building practices all ultimately help to create a building that will endure over time.
We welcome our clients to take an active role in the implementation of green, healthy design and living.
