2021 SUSTAINABILITY ACHIEVEMENTS
Human health & wellbeing is fundamental to our practice! The more building occupants we can positively influence, the better.
Water Saved (Gallons)
In 2021 we saved the equivalent of 10 Olympic swimming pools full of potable water from being wasted.
Energy Saved (kWh)
Our energy strategies saved enough equivalent CO2 to charge 680,600,000 smartphones! That's a lot of cat videos.
Carbon Reduction (kg)
The amount of CO2 we saved is the same as 40 blue whales, 60 space shuttles, or 500 Tyrannosaurus rex.
