We incorporate affordable, efficient sustainable elements into each project Some projects will pursue LEED certification; others will not. Regardless, we make it a priority for each project to integrate sustainable and energy-efficient solutions. Energy costs are rising; we can help you capitalize on all opportunities for energy and cost savings. EOP led the sustainable design effort with Berea College’s Lincoln Hall, the first LEED-certified building in Kentucky, and Berea’s Boone Tavern, the first LEED-certified hotel [Gold].
