Environmental stewardship is an essential function of architecture and a natural outcome of good design. Virtually all of our institutional and commercial projects are designed to achieve a LEED Gold certification, or better. But regardless of a project’s LEED goals, we are committed to designing buildings that carefully consider project impact on micro and macro ecosystems, that provide tangible operating benefits for our

clients, and that create environmental benefits for our communities. As an integral part of the design process, sustainability requires an early, team-wide commitment and must be supported by rigorous research and analysis to verify true environmental and financial benefits.
