We design energy efficient, healthy buildings because it’s the right thing to do—for people, the planet, and the places we call home.

As architects, we play a unique role in improving the built environment for both current and future generations. That’s why sustainable design is embedded in everything we do, right from the start.

The result: Our buildings are typically about 30% more efficient than what’s required by Vermont’s stringent energy code. Building owners save money. Building occupants are more comfortable and more productive.

Many of our projects have won awards for their environmental benefits. And our portfolio of LEED certified buildings continues to grow. We currently have over 1.1 million square feet of real estate LEED certified by the U.S. Green Building Council, with over 75% of that space listed as LEED Gold or Platinum.

In 2020 we also became one of a handful of Vermont firms to publish a Sustainability Action Plan. The SAP is our roadmap to achieving the goals of the AIA 2030 Plan and the Burlington 2030 District. Working with many partners, we seek to eliminate carbon in buildings and go beyond net zero energy use by 2030.  We encourage you to read our plan here.

Our clients care deeply about the environment but are often unsure of where to begin when building green. Our team of experts will work with you to make smart choices that reflect your values and respect your budget.
