Our commitment to working towards carbon neutrality stems from a desire to minimize the amount of energy consumed by our practice and our buildings. Many of our projects achieve the highest green standard with all targeting the highest level achievable given project constraints. In our design and construction processes we always work to create innovative solutions while maximizing access to daylight and the performance of the building envelope.
We research new and current available technologies to improve our project specifications including high performance triple-glazed windows, combined methods of insulation and supplemental energy production through sustainable technologies. We commonly utilize solar technologies for heating water used in both domestic and heating needs as wellas solar photovoltaic panels for the production of electricity.
In addition we commute by bicycle all year round, (no small task given the location of the office in downtown Seattle!).
