Sustainability Initiatives

Indoor Air Quality

Improve indoor air quality through enhanced ventilation strategies, optimal filtration of outdoor and recirculated air, operable windows when possible, and carbon dioxide monitoring.

Construction Waste

Source local building materials, minimize construction waste by diverting up to 75% of potential waste to recycling facilities instead of landfills, and reuse building materials in renovation projects when possible.

Energy Usage

Reduce excessive energy use by utilizing advanced energy design and modeling, promoting passive energy strategies, and investing upfront in highly efficient MEP systems. 

Water Usage

Improve indoor air quality through enhanced ventilation strategies, Reduce building water usage by 30–50%.

Rainwater

Capture, filter, and reuse rainwater runoff whenever possible.

Electric Vehicles

Provide charging infrastructure for electric vehicles to reduce pollution.

Natural Conservation

Conserve existing natural areas, restore damaged areas, and promote biodiversity.

Wellness Initiatives

Lighting Design

Enhance access to natural daylight, utilize circadian lighting design, provide glare control, offer daylight simulation design with electrical lighting, and provide advanced occupant control.

Building Materials

Reduce occupant exposure to chemicals during both the construction and operation of a building through enhanced VOC and hazardous material restrictions in materials, use of non-contaminated building materials, and utilizing non-hazardous cleaning materials.

Sound Comfort

Achieve a peaceful environment for occupants with a desirable level of ambient noise from HVAC equipment and outside sources, increase sound barriers between office and conference spaces, and utilize sound- and reverberation-reducing surfaces and finishes.
