Sustainable design is an important part of our practice. Planning a green project is not something to be tacked on at the end of the process – it requires a thorough and integrated approach. By anticipating environmental concerns from the onset of the project, targets and criteria can be established early and carried through the design phases, including building and energy modeling processes. Starting from initial contact with our client, we work as a team to better achieve the goal of sustainable building.
