Principals: Our names are noted below. 2 of us live in a healthy home and work in a sustainable office trying to practice what we preach.

Partnerships: Our demonstration projects have given some of our 300 partners a unique opportunity to expose, feature, highlight, promote, test and improve their products in a "real world" setting, under actual use, in case your firm has a product, material or technology that needs high profile exposure and/or market feedback.

Projects: If you need professional architectural/environmental design/consulting on a new/retrofit sustainable home, factory, office or campus, our portfolio of residential, commercial & educational projects may be of interest.
