WHY GREEN BUILDINGS?
People are surprised to learn that buildings are the single largest contributor to global warming. Data from USGBC shows that buildings operations in US are responsible for:

39% of CO2 emissions

70% of the electricity generated

12% of total water consumption

Buildings have a lifespan of 50-100 years during which they continually consume energy and produce CO2 emissions. If half of new commercial buildings were built to use 50% less energy, it would save over 6 million metric tons of CO2 annually for the life of the buildings—the equivalent of taking more than 1 million cars off the road every year.

We provide the upfront detailed cost data compared to long-term life-cycle savings to help you make better informed decisions. We offer the leadership and depth of experience needed to facilitate the design process, manage the process and hold the entire team accountable to a focused project vision, goals and strategies. We are passionate about the entire green and sustainable process that makes it intrinsic to everything we do to deliver a higher quality facility and experience for you.

Green buildings not only help the environment but also boost productivity and reduce costs by improving indoor environmental quality and increasing overall energy and operational efficiencies. According to the USGBC, people working in green offices are typically 2 to 16 percent more productive, patients staying in green hospitals are discharged earlier, and children attending green schools have experienced improved test scores.
