Sustainable architecture is about investing over merely spending. Too often initial cost overrules the decision making process, creating unnecessary maintenance and operating costs that far surpass those initial costs during the lifetime of a building. Our philosophy is to address total costs and balance the issues of initial cost along with those costs of operation and maintenance.
Similarly, the most sustainable course of action is to make use of what is already present. Restoration, renovation, adaptive re-use, and materials re-use are ways to make use of the built environment that surrounds us as well as to take advantage of the character of days gone by.
Finally, accessible buildings will better meet the long term needs of the occupants. Whether it is to meet the needs of employees and customers or to meet the needs of those living in a residence, considering the accessibility needs of injured, disabled, or aging occupants increases the usability of a building.
