Leading by Example
Similar to other like-minded firms in the Pacific Northwest, we have long been incorporating sustainable elements into our projects, but sustainability means more than just adding solar panels or recycled materials to a building design. We view sustainability as an integral part of how our work can positively interact with people, the community and the environment.
Experienced in attaining LEED™ certifications and meeting the Washington Sustainable Schools Protocol, we take the long-view when it comes to sustainable design. We do not incorporate elements solely because they have been identified as ‘green’; we implement what we feel are common sense, responsible design practices. In part, this means that we utilize features that minimize energy use and maximize cost savings for our clients. We emphasize durability, efficiency, and flexibility to create buildings that will be relevant and usable for many years.
