Your environment matters.
Sustainability goes beyond reducing a facility’s environmental impact to include creating healthier environments for occupants and decreasing operational costs. Through ongoing training, BRW stays apprised of advances in building methods, materials, and systems to deliver responsible solutions to our clients.
While some buildings reach the end of their useful life and must be replaced, renovating existing facilities is sustainable and often more financially feasible. Building reuse can be an efficient, cost effective, and environmentally responsible way of breathing new life into older resources and recovering under-programmed space. Often, reclaimed areas become destinations, creating centers of activity and synergy between the old and the new, bringing vibrancy to areas that were previously lacking vitality.
This is just one way BRW focuses on sustainability in our practice. Let’s chat about ways we can be better, together.
