Sustainability is more than a label applied to a design.  Sustainability is an integral element for the life of a project. Structures account for nearly 40% of total energy consumption in the United States, according to the US Energy Information Administration. This illustrates the responsibility we have to design structures that are environmentally sensitive, reduce dependency on energy, decrease water usage, and are proudly occupied. By ‘treading lightly on the earth’, we aim to shape tomorrow by designing responsibly today.

Every project at KPB Architects is approached with green building practices in mind. We analyze site-specific parameters, potential building technologies, appropriately selected materials, and community development strategies on our projects regardless of size, industry, or scope. This holistic approach is combined with the owner’s project requirements, allowing the team to set goals and priorities to best deliver the project. While all our designs incorporate project-appropriate green building practices, we offer specific services in sustainable consulting and LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) building certification.

the LEADERSHIP has solid experience in Alaska.

  Michael A. Prozeralik, AIA, LEED AP® President, Managing Principal, Architect Mike Prozeralik has over 30 years of architectural experience, working on a wide range of projects across the country including health care, commercial education and multi-unit residential facilities. He takes great pride in seeing a client’s satisfaction through KPB’s project execution, and as an owner of KPB, finds it rewarding to work with his staff in further developing their creativity and skill. Originally hailing from Upstate New York, it didn’t take long for Mike to call the Great Land “home”. A weeklong fly fishing trip on the Kenai in 1990 turned into a three week adventure, and much like the rainbow trout he was after, Mike was hooked. Less than a year after that fateful fishing trip Mike moved to Alaska and now spends much of his free time at his cabin in Cooper Landing with his wife, their two children and their dog Rosie. KPB believes firmly in giving back to its community, and Mike leads by example: as a Bean’s Café board member and the 2015 Chairman of AEDC’s Board of Directors, as well as teaming up with many other local non-profits, Mike works with the community to make Anchorage a great place to work, live and thrive.
