Sustainable Design

Responsible energy use and management is a key part to any successful project.  As such, we strive to design the most energy efficient and lowest life cycle cost systems that also fit within a project budget.  We routinely utilize energy recovery to capture and use energy that normally would be lost.

Plumbing fixtures that reduce the amount of water consumed in daily operations are utilized.  Many of our projects have harnessed the energy in the earth through the use of geothermal systems.  Lighting systems are design with energy conservation in mind, and lighting controls are used allow illumination only when spaces are occupied.  In fact, our lighting designs routinely beat the allowable IECC power densities by more than 10%.

These and other best engineering practices we have developed over the last 30+ years have earned LEED and Energy Star recognition on a number of our designs.
