As a firm, we are committed to implementing sustainable design throughout our practice. Our integrated design teams include LEED-accredited professionals (43 in total) who are trained in all aspects of green design. We analyze options, develop strategies and build consensus to create truly healthy, high-performance environments. Strategies such as daylighting, high efficiency lighting, HVAC systems and optimized building envelopes and orientations are standard practice on all RLF projects. In fact, because of the long-term cost savings, we typically design to LEED standards whether or not the client plans to complete the certification process. Our design teams are committed to creating sustainable, cost effective solutions that reduce energy costs, provide long-term efficiencies and improve productivity.
