Other Sustainable Systems

  • Permeable paving – utilized at our office to address storm water run-off.
  • Catchment basins and ponds – utilized at our office. Our pond serves several purposes including capping our geothermal well field, catching run-off from several paved areas, aesthetics and providing habitat for passing animals.
  • Bio-swales/rain gardens/bio-retention cells – through careful consideration of how water is absorbed into the site, we can achieve storm water retention goals in addition to providing beautiful visual accents and habitat for local animals or migrating song birds.
  • Native landscaping – native plantings use less water, are more adapted to the existing climate, and require less maintenance than non-native plants.
  • Responsible waste removal
