High Performance Design & LEED Certification High performance design is a strategy in which the pursuit of environmental excellence produces more comfortable, efficient, attractive and profitable buildings and communities. Our consultants work directly with developers, architects and other real-estate professionals to integrate resource-efficiency and environmentally responsible design into specific projects.
Master Planning Sustainable development relies on creating a master plan to maximize the inherent benefits of a site while minimizing the adverse social, economic and environmental impacts of development. Design is centered on the efficient use of resources and features may include optimal orientation to the elements, use of alternative energy, mixed use and increased density, recycling of waste streams into energy or building materials, landscape ecology to promote biodiversity and water management to control surface runoff.
Building Design From the conceptual stage through occupancy and operation, we coordinate the efforts of appropriate specialists on various aspects of design, including envelope, MEP systems, materials selection, lighting, indoor air quality, energy and water use.
USGBC LEED Certification From the earliest stage through occupancy, we coordinate development of LEED documentation and maintain LEED points status.
