Sustainable Design

Sustainable design focuses on energy efficiency, protecting natural resources, and minimizing harmful environmental impacts. It also considers the lifetime costs of a project—not just its initial construction costs—and chooses building materials that are renewable, recycled, and durable. Sustainable design encompasses many elements, from site selection and strategic use of daylight to construction waste management and energy optimization with an overall goal of creating environments that are healthy, livable, and productive. Designing a building utilizing proven green technologies and materials that are environmentally friendly and economically beneficial, can be achieved through careful and strategic planning. At FTCH, we have practiced the principles of sustainable design for decades. Our cross-disciplinary approach to design leads to inspiring and creative solutions that reflect our client’s sustainability goals and capture opportunities for long-lasting positive impact.
