Sustainable Site Planning looks holistically at transportation, habitat protection, storm water, and local climate.
Transportation accounts for 30% of all greenhouse gases, contributing to climate change. Planning for alternate means such as bicycle, pedestrian, mass transit, green vehicles, and telecommuting are best practices we can help integrate in to your project cost effectively.
Habitat Protection and restoration is an opportunity evey project has to leave a site better than it found it. Soil restoration, use of native plantings, limiting of site disturbance and erosion control are some of the measures we typically consider.
Storm Water is a resource often thrown away. Designing to keep storm water onsite, collecting it to use for irrigation or in buildings and infiltrating it into the ground helps reduce impacts on surrounding infrastructure while improving local aquifers.
Local Climate is affected by selection of hardscape & roof materials as well as exterior lighting. Pervious surfaces, high albedo materials, green roofs, and proper lighting design help reduce the heat island affect, create habitat, and reduce night sky pollution.
