Building green cost effectively requires solutions that address relationships between the whole building and its surroundings. This approach requires extensive preplanning, a thorough understanding of the relationships between building systems, and significant collaboration among design and construction specialists. Our long history of managing complex, multidisciplinary projects provides us with the expertise to precisely develop and execute integrated project management solutions.
We implement a customized approach on green building projects to deeply integrate environmental performance objectives into a program as early as possible. This process clearly defines the overall project goals and value statement and links them inextricably to environmental performance, establishing a foundation for delivering green building projects within conventional budgets.
To the extent possible, our green building approach is front-end loaded to facilitate the following predesign services:
- pre-design planning
- feasibility studies
- conceptual programming and cost estimating
- project team structure prototyping
- investment/payback analyses consistent with the owner’s own criteria
- environmental performance definition and program integration
Throughout project execution, we manage all identified performance goals, cost and schedule imperatives, and overall quality. The end result is a project that meets the owner’s expectations, cost effectively.
