Energy efficient design and the responsible use of the earth’s resources have been an integral part of our philosophy since the firm was founded. In recent years, LEED certification has emerged as a way to analyze and document the energy performance of a building on a comprehensive basis. It also factors in the life cycle aspects of material selection which were previously overlooked.
Our firm has eagerly embraced the LEED initiative and supported the effort by encouraging staff members to seek LEED accreditation. Currently, three individuals, representing 25% of our professional staff, have earned the LEED AP designation.
