Our goal for sustainability is to provide an integrated approach to design that is economically feasible and environmentally and socially responsible. We identify the best practices and implement the most appropriate plan for the project and all of its stakeholders, one that can identify benefits and value on the investment.
There are many green building standards and alternatives to the USGBC LEED rating system such as National Green Building Program, Build It Green and CalGreen. We work together with our clients to identify the standard best suited for the project. As protocols change, we will assess our progress and adjust our process when necessary, but will also ensure that we always provide valuable service to our clients. MBH also participates in the process and the cost of educating our staff to become LEED Accredited Professionals. Research study groups and an extensive library provide all they will need to prepare for becoming a LEED AP. Over 20 of our staff members are LEED Accredited Professionals.
