Like organisms, buildings should be responsive to their environment and have safe, robust systems. Green buildings should utilize safe, local resources; have lower operation costs; and deliver energy and water savings.

  • LEED® certification and ENERGY STAR design
  • Project visioning
  • Eco-charrette leadership
  • Deep-green and net-zero energy building

  • Low impact development and design

Not only do we implement green building principles for our clients—our own new offices are LEED certified, as well.

Use our cutting-edge tools to recognize and safeguard your natural resources. Using the most current sensor technologies, such as LiDAR, digital cameras/sensors and aerial imagery, we capture and interpret information about vegetation, watersheds and land usage. We’ve even developed our own industry-leading watershed management software tools that quantify water quality and flows. Our natural resource management services include:

  • Watershed management
