In addition to our many LEED® certified projects, we work to submit sustainable designs in other aspects as well. We’ve worked on projects with solar technology and Energy Star ratings. We’ve also conducted many life-cycle cost analyses to help our clients determine their footprint. Our knowledge of sustainability has led to many green build projects and has continued to educate the engineering community about the importance of energy conservation.
