Leading the Way with Sustainable Design

We aim to positively impact our communities and make them better today and for future generations.

We recognize the development and construction of commercial buildings can have an impact on the environment. We respect the environment and strive to be a good steward, protecting natural resources and reducing potential negative impacts of our work.

Environmentally responsible design begins with a passion for and commitment to sustainability. With LEED accredited professionals in every discipline, we take an integrated, thoughtful approach where green strategies are ingrained in the entire decision-making process.

We are highly qualified in the design and construction of sustainable buildings. Our portfolio includes USGBC LEED, Fitwel and Green Globes certified projects.

Best Practices Approach

We follow a best practices approach that ensures sustainability is discussed on all projects. We incorporate sustainable strategies into our building programs by focusing on five areas throughout the development process:

  • sustainable site selection and planning
  • conservation of materials and resources
  • safeguarding water and water efficiency
  • energy efficiency and renewable energy
  • indoor environmental quality

A Cross-Functional Approach to Sustainability

Crossing multiple functions, our team of USGBC LEED accredited associates brings vast knowledge of sustainability from architectural design to construction project management.

In addition to our accredited professionals, we have the GREENteam, an associate engagement group focused on stewardship through sustainability, that includes cross-functional representation and focuses on our work, our associates and our offices.

Our facilities management associates and others also ensure sustainability is practiced within our offices. We have programs that support resource reuse and reduction and energy efficiency.

We have 63 USGBC LEED certified projects, including 29 LEED Gold projects at 9.1 million square feet and 23 LEED Silver projects at 6 million square feet. Our total portfolio of sustainably certified projects totals 22.4 million square feet.
