At KPB Architects, sustainability is our philosophy.

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. Please see below for a selection of projects which highlight our sustainable design approach and feel free to contact us to start a dialogue on our sustainable philosophy.
