Sustainable Design

Associated practices a collaborative design process. We use an integrated, synergistic approach, considering all phases of the overall project life-cycle, aimed at achieving demonstrable optimal management of energy, environmental, human, waste, and water assets during design, construction, and operation.

Sustainable design is not a discipline on its own, but rather a common practice with thoughtful, creative, and innovative engineering that crosses all disciplines.  Across Associated, staff members share ideas to meet and overcome current and future challenges. We promote economic, environmental, and social sustainability on all our projects. We collaborate with our clients to develop sustainable plans and designs.

    • I have been combining my passion for structural design and sustainability for two decades. I believe in finding the best structural solution that demonstrates beauty and responsibility. My favorite material is wood, but I have worked with a wide range of different materials.
    • I enjoy spending time with my family. I love the outdoors - skiing in the winter and anything near or on the open water in the summer. I'm also constantly tinkering with my house.
