Sustainability


P R O J E C T:

INTELLECTUALLY, WE ALL KNOW GOING GREEN IS THE RESPONSIBLE THING TO DO. FROM ORGANIC FOOD TO HYBRID CARS TO SUSTAINABLE DESIGN, THE ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE CHOICE IS ALWAYS THE RIGHT LONG-TERM CHOICE. YET MOST OF US MUST BALANCE OUR DESIRE TO BE RESPONSIBLE WITH OUR NEED TO BE REALISTIC NOW. DOES IT HAVE TO COST MORE TO GO GREEN?

QS/1 needed an affordable corporate headquarters facility that is – and would remain – impressive, innovative and environmentally responsible. McMillan Smith & Partners assembled a team of forward-thinkers, aided by sophisticated design and planning tools, to meet the company’s financial and environmental targets:

Open-air balconies and terraces, landscaped plazas, spacious meeting rooms and presentation spaces, a bright data center, refreshment alcoves and an indoor-outdoor café make QS/1 an inviting, inspiring workspace. Sensitive stewardship of resources proves that it’s a responsible corporate citizen, today and tomorrow.
