Sustainability is not an after-thought or a list of items that can be checked off. Rather it is a way of addressing and solving the biggest challenges of economics, society and environment. We strive to integrate sustainability into the core of our vision to ensure that the best possible results are achieved.
A sustainable approach adds value. In collaborating with the client’s design team and with our vendors to find the most eco-friendly methods and materials available we build healthier, more sustainable structures.
Sustainable building practices are rapidly rewriting the rules of the design and construction industry. Building systems consume 40% of the world’s energy, we all have a moral imperative to dedicate ourselves to moving the construction industry toward a greener future, one that reduces our impact on the environment and reverses climate change.
As members of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), N+L actively supports our clients who seek to achieve LEED ratings on their projects. We have several LEED AP professionals on staff and the ranks are steadily growing.
We team up with our client and their architect to build an innovative retail environment that incorporates numerous green elements such as:
- Vegetative Roof
- Green Screens
- Storm water Pollution Prevention
- Water Efficiency/Storm water Management
- Heat Island (Non-Roof)
- Indoor Air Quality
- Materials Reuse
- Recycled Materials
- Brownfield Redevelopment
The future only looks bright if it’s green, we plan to be at the forefront of this positive and necessary change.
