Why We're Green

As professional engineers who incorporate sustainable building design into all projects, renovating our building to maximize sustainability was a priority. From landscape to daily operations, we continuously implement measures to ensure that we reduce our carbon footprint.

For the exterior, we removed the grass and non-native plants and replaced them with drought-tolerant native landscape. We replaced our existing rolled comp roof with a cool white roof and added a solar PV system to offset the entire building’s electrical loads.

Inside, we replaced the original single pane windows with high-performance Low-E windows. We also replaced all lighting fixtures with LED lighting and our appliances with Energy Star office equipment. To further increase energy efficiency, we upgraded our HVAC systems to all-electric heat pumps, replaced faucet aerators with low-flow fixtures, and upgraded to high-efficiency toilets.

To incorporate sustainability in our operations, we provide easily accessible waste systems throughout our office, including hazardous waste storage for proper disposal. We provide our clients with digital contracts, invoices, records, and utilize online statements whenever possible. Our computers and monitors are set to sleep after inactivity to aid in reducing energy consumption as well.

Our efforts to maintain a green building and business model go along with our core principle of making buildings run better. We want the example we set to inspire our clients and colleagues to rethink their systems and join us in becoming a green business.
