We create optimal indoor environments.
A high-performing building is energy-efficient and meets rigorous standards for lighting, ventilation, noise, thermal comfort, humidity, and indoor air quality (IAQ). Those standards can vary widely depending on the intended use of a built environment: a hospital operating room, a government office, or a classroom.
Poor indoor environments lead to negative consequences including post-surgical infections, uncomfortable working conditions, or poor learning outcomes. That’s why we focus on creating environmental controls that support the specific use of the physical environment, be it a surgical suite, university laboratory, or classroom space.
The good news is that environmental performance does not have to come at the expense of increased energy consumption. Our design goal is to combine energy-efficiency and an optimal environment guarantee on every project.

Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is an excellent measure of the overall health a building. It's essential to have good indoor air quality to ensure the occupants in your building remain healthy and happy. Various things contribute to indoor air quality, some of which include:
- Air ventilation
- Cleaning supplies
- Air filtration
- HVAC maintenance
- Asthma triggers
- Radon levels
