Green development and design strategies are most
successful and most cost effective when they are
integrated into the initial project concept.  We strive to
achieve visionary goals through practical strategies and
building technologies.  Green project goals identified at
the beginning of the project are incorporated into all
aspects of the design as it proceeds through the
development process.
The most critical element for project success is the
selection and management of the team members who
will contribute to the realization of the project vision.  All
consultants are selected not only for their professional
expertise, but also for their ability to participate in an
integrated design process where all team members work
collaboratively to achieve the project’s goals. We also
identify critical financial partners early in the team
building process.
