Sustainability

We don’t view “green” design as a marketing label. We view it as a responsible choice.  Environmental stewardship is a legacy we strive to embrace in our choices, our projects, and our personal lives.

Sustainability is not simply a matter of action, but a change in mindset that creates a culture of responsibility for the future. That is why we are proud to annually sponsor the Green Celebration in Lakeland, FL., where grants are awarded to winning schools that showcase their student’s environmental ideas on how to better care for our planet. Green design is a lifestyle for all who deal with the built environment and the inheritance we leave for generations to come.
