WHY DBR? OUR PHILOSOPHY
We believe that sustainable design should result in high performance buildings while enhancing building aesthetics, reducing environmental impact, optimizing initial financial value, and decreasing operational costs.

INTEGRATIVE & COLLABORATIVE
Our team assists early in the design process, providing not only energy and water conservation strategies, but also architectural support such as, preliminary energy modeling to assess architecture solutions, facade design thermal assessments, and building material choice guidance.
COST & ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT REDUCTION
Our team provides cost effective solutions for sustainability by considering pay back and return on investment (ROI). By coupling energy model assessment and life-cycle cost assessment, stakeholders can make informed decisions during design and decide which energy efficiency strategies are best suitable for their buildings.
INNOVATIVE & CREATIVE
Sustainable buildings should not only perform efficiently, but also be aesthetically pleasing. During the design, we work hand in hand with architects and clients to develop unique sustainability solutions from passive solar strategies to active mechanical system strategies.
