Our design process integrates data-driven strategies for energy modeling, embodied carbon reduction, optimizing daylight, and analyzing outdoor thermal comfort
We believe sustainable design requires a future-forward mindset and holistic, integrated solutions to help our clients and communities thrive. Every project is an opportunity to address climate change in the design of buildings, campuses, landscapes, and cities. Our sustainability leaders on each project team advance best practices and innovative solutions to build responsibly for the benefit of future generations.
Our sustainable design approach helps our educational, corporate and commercial, and civic clients meet their climate action plan goals for reducing their carbon emissions, energy use, and water use
We support certifications that identify and verify sustainability metrics, including LEED, LEED-ND, SITES, Net-Zero and Living Building Challenge
We identify challenges and opportunities for each project, proposing resilient systems to mitigate risk from flooding, wildfires, earthquakes, extreme heat or cold, hurricanes or tornadoes
