Sustainable + Resilient Design 7


We create lasting value for communities and the people who call them home.

We believe good design is sustainable design. Good design balances the well-being of people and the health of our planet. This belief is deeply rooted in our Human by Design ethos. Our work aims to make a lasting and positive impact on people’s lives and the world we inhabit. From the projects we design to our day-to-day operations, everything we do is grounded in sustainability.

We are committed to design that enhances the health and wellbeing of people, communities, and the planet. We believe that to achieve a more resilient future, we must approach design holistically, addressing social, economic, and environmental challenges through holistic design and in partnership with our clients, collaborators, and other industries including transportation and manufacturing. As designers of the built environment, we have an obligation to apply our expertise to the most pressing crises of our era—public health, global economic, social justice, and climate change.

We work every day to translate our beliefs into actions, outlined below, that contribute to a resilient future.
