Landon Bone Baker Architects has been committed to environmentally sustainable design since 1987 when the practice was established. Early on, many of our multi-family new and rehabbed affordable housing projects incorporated energy-efficient features focusing on a tight, well-insulated building shell and high-efficient mechanical equipment, which reduced carbon emissions and minimized energy bills. Over the years, we have refined and advanced our sustainable practices, and today, where budgets allow, we use more advanced systems such as solar-thermal and geo-thermal technologies. We embrace the latest advances in engineering, energy-efficiency and environmental technology that are appropriate to each project. We strive to define environmental objectives with our clients early in the design process to achieve an integrated design that builds on fundamental environmental concepts:
• Energy efficiency
• Recycled and renewable materials
• Low-embodied energy materials
• Responsible harvested materials
• Water management systems
• Life cycle cost
• Recycle/rehabilitate existing buildings
• Reduce ozone-depleting materials
• Preserve the natural environment
• Solar orientation
• Access to public transportation
