And Green Design


DC takes a holistic approach to solving environmental, economic and social challenges. We work with clients to identify their sustainable goals and measurable outcomes. We assess needs, consider varying options and develop a plan to achieve the desired objectives. The incorporation of sustainable building ideas such as green building, intelligent building, and energy efficiency has long been an integral part of DC’s design excellence. We implement these concepts—through advanced building control systems, climatically responsive layouts, waste reduction principles, and natural day-lighting—in projects executed throughout the region.

Our sustainable design process recognizes that building materials—and the energy required to extract or create them—are not infinite and must be carefully considered during all aspects of design, construction, and post-construction. Additionally, a sustainable building incorporates natural systems from daylight to fresh air, providing a superior environment for the occupants as well as a better long-term contribution to the future of our environment.
