We have designed more than 500 LEED certified projects and sites, as well as Net-Zero/Carbon Neutral and Living Building Challenge projects.
The Embodied Carbon Presentation by KPFF was specifically tailored to our firm and our work together. It was a very informative presentation giving insight into how our design decisions can impact the carbon footprint of our structure and how early decisions about our structural approach can help us significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings.

Within our offices, some of the ongoing practices we have implemented to reduce our environmental impact include electronic filing systems to reduce paper use, incorporation of recycled and renewable materials in our specifications, and repurposing plotter trimmings into notepads. Our offices are stocked with reusable flatware, dishes, glasses and mugs. Many of our locations encourage employees to use public transit and active transportation, often subsidizing monthly transit passes and bicycle parking.
