Building a More Sustainable Future
Austin has made sustainability a part of everything we do – not only in our work, but also within our culture. Sustainable design practiced at Austin is an integrated process that is treated no differently than any other program element.
Our services in this area continue to gain momentum as awareness grows and as more suitable building products become available in the marketplace. Opportunities for sustainable design are evaluated at a project’s outset, with a strategy developed to maximize sustainable influence. The client’s sustainable requirements are balanced against the budget to find the right solution for each item.
LEED AP Professionals
Austin and our sister companies have more than 100 LEED® APs on staff – many with specialties in Building Design and Construction (BD + C) – and are corporate members of the U.S. Green Building Council.
Austin takes a sustainable design approach to every project, regardless of goals for LEED® certification. Because Austin is an integrated architecture, engineering, construction and consulting firm, we practice both “sustainable design” and “green building” – integrating sustainable design with construction and commissioning.
