Green building

Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building’s life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building.

We are helping clients design and build green projects around the globe — boosting operational efficiency, reducing water and energy use, and delivering guidance on how to integrate sustainability principles into organizational culture and practice.

With growing pressure to lower carbon footprints and comply with mandates, stakeholders and the public are looking for third-party verification of sustainable (“green”) construction and operation. Green building certifications are a great way to convey leadership. However, completing the process requires personnel, time and effort. In addition, technologies, strategies and expectations are changing rapidly. In this landscape, finding the best path to the desired performance can be challenging.

We help you envision (or re-vision) your building from the viewpoint of sustainable design. We leverage our engineering skill to create buildings that are simply—better. We aim to create comfortable, environmentally responsible spaces while supporting your creative viewpoint and financial goals.
