"We have been a signatory to the AIA 2030 commitment since 2019. In 2020, our projects reported energy savings equivalent to carbon emissions that would be sequestered by more than 84,147 acres of forest in one year."
"With this approach, we have established an impressive track record of 6 million square feet of LEED Platinum & Gold certified buildings and campuses. Our projects have been recognized for their sustainability features including the Design Tech High School in Redwood City and Gilead 309 Velocity in Foster City."
"We have designed over 5.2 million square feet of office, life science and educational campuses along the San Francisco waterfront, with publicly accessible amenities, bay trails and bay-friendly vegetation. Our design not only created inspiring "destinations" on the bay, but also enabled the building projects and public shoreline to be resilient and adaptive to the foreseeable sea-level rise."
"We set our goals high of pursuing design innovation and construction technologies to create the next generation of buildings that meet the needs of the future."
"Our most recent tech office and life science building and campus projects have achieved and continue to target Health and Wellness focused certifications. We have also pledged to practice Health and Wellness in our daily operations.
