Sustainable Design and LEED Certification
From the inception of our company, one of our greatest strengths has been our emphasis on sustainable, green and energy-efficient building design. We were “designing green” years before it became the popular thing to do. With this approach we have, for example, been able to achieve heating and cooling costs which are greatly lower than average.
We firmly believe that one reason for our success is our concern for energy conscious design as a priority for each design and project. To that end, we typically include a LEED consultant on our project team. Should the City or District contemplate a LEED – Self Performing station we are able to provide a LEED Certified building or design in accordance with sustainable principles/concepts at the level which meets your facilities energy requirements and desires.
All core members of our team have multiple project experience in both LEED certified and LEED self-performing emergency services facilities as well as comprehensive energy modeling and day-lighting studies.
