As a firm, we work diligently to design buildings that are beautiful, cost effective, and supportive of the uses that they accommodate. But buildings have a wider impact on the environment, so we also endeavor to produce sustainable projects that use energy and water frugally, reduce CO2 emissions, improve indoor environmental quality, and demonstrate good stewardship of natural resources. Half of our architectural staff are LEED Accredited Professionals of the United States Green Building Council, and many of our projects are scheduled for LEED Certification. However all of our designs incorporate the best principles of sustainability. We believe this is just a part of good design and best practice.
