Sustainability & Wellness Pursuits
As a firm; we feel the early adoption and a continued pursuit of coupled energy efficiency, health and wellness and sustainable building practices are at the root of all successful projects. As we aim to keep ahead of an industry that has migrated from a call to action in the early 90’s , a push to rate and rank projects in the late 90’s, and a recognized need to measure performance in the first decade of the new millennia, we feel it is critical to further the pursuits of sustainability with architecturally led efforts that holistically combine the pursuits of efficient building systems with the “invisible” benefits of great design and engaged planning and programming. As a team employing and lead by LEED and WELL accredited professionals, we are well equipped to pursue LEED and WELL certification pursuits for our clients. In addition, our principal commitment to formative sustainable change is embodied by lead principal Phillip Camp’s accreditation as an AEE – Certified Energy Manager, making the firm uniquely qualified to lead the deep energy retrofits required to keep ahead of the impending energy initiatives and rising fuel costs saddling many of the inefficient facilities making up our existing building inventory. Perhaps most importantly is our focus on the health and wellness of the occupants within the projects we design. As a firm believer in the 3-30-300 Rule, we feel efforts that can help improve the most valuable part of any building… its occupants; is bound to bring the most long term success to our Clients. Our Workplace Wellness + Productivity Retrofit efforts allow our clients to quantify the economic returns that will be driven by physiological benefits from specific design attributes we propose. With this information, we can focus on the design revisions that will generate the most benefits for the occupants within the space, and in turn help our clients long after the project is completed and occupied.
