From Transit Oriented Development (TOD) & Walkable Urban Places (WalkUPs) To LEED & SITES, We Know Green

Early in our formation, our practice focused on the redevelopment and revitalization of the DC Metro Region’s urban areas.  We have continued this tradition through strengthening our knowledge of sustainability practices, such as LEED, SITES, and the International Green Construction Code, and by becoming experts in complex urban infill sites.  We have certified staff in several sustainability specialties:

  • Green Roof Professionals
  • LEED AP BD+C
  • LEED AP O+M
  • LEED AP ND
  • LEED GREEN ASSOCIATES
  • SITES

Our Integrated Multi-Disciplinary Design Approach Pays Off Through Sustainable Solutions

Because we understand the language of civil engineering, landscape architecture, and planning codes and regulations, we can coordinate early on best practices:

  • Water Conservation & Quality
  • Tree Canopy & Preservation
  • Soil Health & Conservation
  • Habitat & Ecological Services
  • Material Reduction, Reuse, & Recycling
  • Human Health & Well-Being

Smart Growth Begins with WalkUPs

WalkUPs define the basic elements of smart growth and the foundation of our practices.  Walkable urban development is defined by three basics:

  • Higher densities
  • Mix of real estate types
  • Multiple transportation options

And our business is focused on the complex job of getting projects built in many DC Metro Region WalkUPs, such as Ballston, Bethesda, the Capital Riverfront, Clarendon, Downtown DC, Frederick, Friendship Heights, Kentlands, New Carrollton, Old Town Alexandria, Pentagon City, Prince George’s Plaza, Reston, Rockville, Rosslyn, Silver Spring, Tysons Corner, Wheaton, and White Flint.
