R3A is passionate about sustainability as a core value and pursues green building best practices on each project, not just those pursuing LEED. We are partners with Energy Star for buildings and have adopted the AIA 2030 Challenge. We encourage our staff to be active with local green building organizations.
Our 9 LEED Accredited Professionals belong to an in-house Sustainability Studio, which meets regularly to discuss projects and emerging practices in sustainable design. The Sustainability Studio revisits completed buildings’ performance metrics for post-occupancy analyses, as well as glean lessons learned from both successes and failed strategies.
