Challenge

Design a modern, “green” building to compete with nearby retailers and attract environmentally-conscious customers. Develop shared vision for sustainability and business success between client and tenant.

Solution

Effective communication and progressive design alleviated concerns about green retail design and produced an ultra-efficient building.
