CONSULTING FOR A GREEN DESIGN COMMUNITY
Beyond designing our own projects we offer consulting services to other project teams, guiding them toward measures that meet sustainable design criteria and/or LEED specific goals. From developing sustainability guidelines to managing LEED documentation for entire campuses, our experience in green design spans a wide variety of projects, each with its own unique demands and goals. We work with project teams to identify and implement the measures that will bring the greatest benefit.
