About Sustainability & Building Performance

Forward thinking design

As designers, performance is at the heart of what we do. We’re dedicated to helping clients realize the full potential of their projects in terms of life cycle cost, energy efficiency, carbon reduction, and human health and wellness.

Informed by data and grounded in the market, we design environments to support human resilience, health, and wellness while delivering value through life cycle cost analysis and reducing consumption of energy and carbon. We consult and design at every scale of built, natural, and organizational environment. Whether clients are exploring the value of sustainable buildings or moving forward with a green project, our team can guide them through the process.

Our integrated approach considers climate and site, performance modeling, passive and net-zero design, WELL Building criteria, LEED® certification, and post-occupancy assessment. Why? Because we know increased daylight in hospitals reduces medical errors. Because we understand the economic and environmental benefits of reducing energy usage to net zero. Because we believe green roofs and greywater systems are leading the way to the next generation of sustainable buildings. And, because, we know we’re making a difference, one project at a time—for ours and future generations.
