The environments where our clients live, work, and play impacts discovery and changes lives. At Silling, this is a responsibility that we take very seriously. Good design and sustainability should work together to result in increased building efficiency, improves users' health and productivity, conserves the Earth's resources, and reduces operational and maintenance costs. A building should wear its sustainability not only as a demonstration serving to inspire those who interact with the facility, but also as a model of achievement for the community.
Our approach to creating sustainable buildings begins with the following core design principles:
- Optimal use of the site
- Use of non-renewable energy consumption
- Use of environmentally preferable products
- Conservation of water
- Enhancement of indoor air quality
- Optimize operational and maintenance practices
Our team of LEED-accredited design professionals provide leadership in defining sustainable planning initiatives for each project, implementing sustainable strategies, and working through the LEED Certification process. As a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), we are committed to creating environmentally and economically effective buildings for our clients and communities.
