high performance buildings We work with clients to create high performance buildings, focusing on two distinct kinds of outcomes >

1

Maximize Outcomes: these are all the measures we take to optimize human comfort, well-being, and productivity. Our “human-centered� focus results in buildings that are responsive and tailored to the desired outcomes of the people who use them.

high performance buildings

Passive Systems: We maximize passive energy design strategies to reduce overall building energy and resource demand. Passive design utilizes simple, non-moving elements to control heat transfer and capitalize on opportunities for

Solar Collectors

collection of solar energy, wind, and rainwater. Active Systems: After passive systems have been fully optimized, we incorporate appropriate active systems to further reduce resource demand and CO2 emissions. Active

systems for this transit station include harvesting of solar and wind energy, geothermal heating / cooling and rainwater reuse.

infrastructure Infrastructure often happens “behind the scenes.” But in highly visible contexts, appearance is critical. We have been effective in elevating the aesthetic qualities on several high profile infrastructure projects. Vent Building 7 at Logan Airport is one of our most prominent examples, winning several design excellence awards, including the Harleston Parker Medal, an annual honor bestowed on the “Most Beautiful Building in Boston.”

principals Leonard J. Bertaux AIA, LEED Leonard Bertaux is a co-founder and principal of the firm with over 30 years of experience in the planning and design of transportation, institutional, commercial, municipal, and residential architecture. With an educational background in physics and architecture, he leverages his passion for improving the ways buildings work to create high performance buildings that are energy efficient, resource-wise, and people-centered. Focusing on ways to move architecture to net-zero energy use, his philosophy is to maximize passive building strategies in order to reduce energy need while incorporating cost-effective renewable energy solutions to further enhance energy independence. Leonard is a leading practitioner of sustainable design and a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Leonard’s innovative design work has been recognized by numerous design excellence awards, most recently for the Bridgeport Intermodal Transportation Center which has brought new vitality to the city’s waterfront. Prior to forming Bertaux+Iwerks he was a design principal with the Wallace Floyd Design Group for 14 years.

Chris M. Iwerks AIA, LEED Chris Iwerks is a co-founder and principal of the firm. His interest in the principles of outcome-oriented thinking has been the point of departure in developing the firm’s Outcome-Driven design framework. The methods of Outcome-Driven design now serve as the firm’s basic collaboration platform for every project undertaken. His design work covers an unusually wide range of building types and sizes, executed at scales ranging from very large public works and civic projects to mid-sized academic and transportation facilities. His portfolio includes nationally recognized projects for education, research, transportation and civic institutions. His efforts have been recognized nationally and locally for design excellence, including receipt of the highest architectural achievement in Boston—the Harleston Parker Medal for “the most beautiful building in Boston”—awarded to Vent Building No. 7 at Logan Airport. Throughout his career, Chris has been an advocate for integrating sustainable design strategies into his projects and was among the first in the country to become a LEED Accredited Professional (LEED AP) with the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. Prior to forming Bertaux+Iwerks he was a co-founder of TAMS Architecture in Boston, which he led for 21 years.
