Every design, construction, and manufacturing project we consult on demands technical expertise, precision, and military-grade coordination. And whether you've hired us to help you analyze complex sustainability choices and trade-offs, review resilient design strategies, navigate green building and product certification programs, or to help your team integrate new sustainability criteria into your ongoing operations -- your mission is our mission.
The technologies and standards that define sustainable design and construction, and the emerging systems, materials, and products related to the field -- are changing at a pace and scale never before seen in our industry, demanding considerable attention. And that's exactly where we come in.
Since the seeds of sustainability were first planted, we've been actively engaged on a national level with many of the thought leaders and organizations driving our industry forward, and have directly contributed to many of the new standards and practices shaping the built environment.
We've built our business and earned our reputation by arming our clients with the emerging technologies and best-practices that position them to stay ahead of the curve - and in front of their competition.
Our practice is fueled by the urgency of climate change and our belief that by reducing carbon emissions in every project we work on, we can act on, and leverage the immensely positive environmental impact that our industry could have in fighting this global crisis. This belief inspires an enduring search for innovative resilient and sustainable solutions for the built environment; a search we share with our peers throughout the industry. These forces drive us forward to explore innovative programs, products, and practices, so that we can bring new solutions and a new range of options to our consulting projects - and to the building owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, facility managers, and building product manufacturers that form our client base.
Resilient design considerations that anticipate and address the effects of climate change are at the forefront of our practice, and when coupled with our expertise in sustainability, form the foundation of our approach. When matched with our clients' priorities for their products or projects - we can then draw from a full range of performance-based building rating systems and LCA and health based product criteria that align with each mission -- and budget -- for each project.
"Our focus is to guide our clients toward the practices, products, and elements that will help them create resilient, sustainable buildings designed to withstand extreme weather events, safely shelter their occupants, ensure uninterrupted operations, and provide healthy, efficient, nurturing, and productive environments.
This is where it all comes together for us - where we dedicate all of our expertise, passion, and precision....in the service of our clients, in the service of our industry, and in the service of the environment." -- Valerie Walsh, Principal
