Green Building + Sustainable Design
WE BELIEVE IT IS our duty to be respectful of our environment AND to ensure a healthy future for subsequent generations. This commitment permeates our design process and informs all that we do - sustainability is an integral part of good design.
We are constantly exploring ways to increase value for our clients through creative design and innovative use of materials and systems. Through partnerships with our forward-thinking clients, we have become a regional leader in the implementation of sustainable planning and green building design. Our experience includes multiple Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings, leading in the establishment of the LEED-ND program and shaping dozens of Enterprise Green Communities.
City Architecture's long-standing commitment to this approach is rooted in our belief that investments in our core communities are inherently sustainable and equitable. Connecting people's homes with their workplaces, shopping districts and recreational assets through walkable and bikable infrastructure investments reduces the need for vehicular travel. We believe this socially responsible approach includes offering choice and access. Simply stated, we believe in "green" for all.
Enterprise Green Communities aligns affordable housing investment strategies with environmentally responsive building practices. Green building integrates materials and methods that promote environmental quality, economic vitality, and social benefits through design, construction, and operation of the built environment. The Enterprise Green Communities Criteria were developed collaboratively by a number of leading national organizations and experts for the purpose of providing a clear, cost-effective framework for all affordable housing development types, including New Construction and Rehabilitation in both multifamily and single-family projects.
