The impact of modern industrialized society and the growth of human population have led to the universal realization that a new harmony with the planet’s environment is necessary for the continued well being of humankind and all species. Carbon and environmental toxin reductions, combined with the intelligent use of our natural resources, are important issues of our time. Changing the process of creating and occupying buildings is a key to addressing these issues and securing the new environmental harmony for our future generations.  We use the “triple bottom line” approach to our work–the goal of working towards environmental harmony, social equity, and financial responsibility.
