Sustainable Design

Building codes, operating costs and public awareness are creating more emphasis on the concept of sustainable design.

We provide experience with sustainable building concepts, including inclusion of salvaged materials and use of sustainable new building products.

We have worked with passive and active solar energy options, including green roofs and photo voltaic panels.

We incorporate efficient heating and cooling options, including geothermal.

Utilizing energy modeling and daylighting programs, we can evaluate the relative effects of glazing, orientation and shading, insulation levels and building systems efficiencies to achieve a balance between initial cost and operating cost. Working with engineering consultants we can incorporate LEED and EnergyStar concepts and strategies to provide efficient building solutions.
