Sustainable Design

The opportunities to incorporate green design principles into modern facilities are bounded only by the limits of creativity. For each project, our team develops a collaborative approach to create a realistic and achievable design. Our focus is on both the overall picture as well as specific details to determine the goals, strategies and project priorities relative to energy and sustainable design.

We have several professionals within our firm with extensive experience in confirming compliance with the LEED rating system and in calculating the energy cost savings. We use state-of-the-art building energy analysis simulation tools to project annual energy consumption and costs.
