The world is facing the impact of climate change and the need to develop greater net-zero resilience-building systems. Managing for these risks has become more prevalent, with increased emphasis on energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, conservation of water resources, consideration of sustainable products, and disclosure of organizational sustainability performance.
Our approach to sustainability is summarized in the following design principles:
Minimize Non-renewable Energy Consumption
Renewable Energy Strategies
Sustainable Material Choices
Reducing building cooling demands by innovative energy systems will reduce the makeup of water for the cooling towers and capturing condensate at the cooling coils in high humidity ambient locations could be a significant factor in reducing the city’s domestic water requirements.
Additional alternative water sources would be atmospheric water generation, foundation water, blowdown water, and desalinated water.
