Our Sustainable Design Philosophy
Building practices have come a long way over the past years with new and exciting innovations which benefit both the users and the natural environment. Our first step is to work with our clients to be informative as to available systems, options, and technologies which if incorporated within their budget will make the project more energy efficient and sustainable over the life of the building. We take best building practices into account on all projects and take into account the clients wishes to achieve well constructed energy efficient solutions.
Starting with the demolition and removal, we will work with the contractor and Building Officials to develop a recycling plan to remove and document building products removed from the site and assure that they are being hauled off site to an acceptable landfill or recycling center. Energy efficiency is improved by implementing specified building techniques and using products which are produced with less energy and are produced using sustainable building techniques.
Our intent is to give our clients the opportunity to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible with their building project.
We look for and analyze ways to enhance the living space and to increase efficiency through energy and water use, indoor air quality and materials while reducing building impacts on human health and the environment through sustainable building practices of design, construction, operation, and removal.
