Our Approach

We embrace our responsibility to advance sustainable design and planning for every project type, geographic region and budget level. Our people are impassioned by the opportunity to design healthy, environmentally friendly projects that improve our planet’s overall environmental condition. By designing solutions that enhance aesthetic goals, limit resource consumption, improve building performance, and promote health and productivity, we assist our clients in leading the way toward an increasingly sustainable future.

Since our founding in 1998, we have been committed to making a measurable difference in the world by enriching lives and creating more sustainable communities. Today, our long-term commitment to using design to build a better world influences everything we do. We have nine LEED Accredited Professionals, a regional network of sustainable “champions”, and several current projects pursuing LEED certification. We are also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council.

In its broadest sense, sustainability is about creating healthy, economically viable communities that satisfy basic human needs. Everything we do reflects our understanding that our firm has the opportunity to leave a lasting impact on the local and global environment.
