We believe in providing our clients with efficient, comfortable, and healthy working and learning environments that are easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain, and beautiful. We are committed to balancing innovative green building technologies with long-standing good design practice, and understand that sustainability begins with an integrated team process early in the project. Green building strategies include optimizing building orientation, energy-efficient systems, daylighting, use of local, recycled, renewable and healthy materials, and building commissioning. We have considerable in-house expertise in the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system.
