Since our inception, Broaddus & Associates has been committed to sustainability on the projects we manage. Along with many of our clients, we recognize that a large amount of energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions is attributed to buildings in the United States. For that reason, we have retained knowledgeable personnel and developed processes to assist our clients in implementing sustainable features in their facilities.
Our Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) accredited professionals advise owners on how to design and build facilities that are environmentally friendly, energy-efficient and economical through the careful use of sustainable materials and practices. Our goal is to ensure the implementation of materials and methods that provide the most effective and efficient facilities with the smallest environmental impact (as well as reduced life-cycle costs for the facility).
In addition to our completed projects, a large portion of our current projects are seeking LEED certifications at various levels or have sustainable features such as siting, water efficiency, energy efficiency, material recycling, air quality, and daylighting, to name a few.
Our company also encourages sustainable practices in our day-to-day operations, and demonstrates our commitment through the training and support given to our staff and through our membership in organizations like the US Green Building Council, National Institute of Building Sciences and Green Guide for Healthcare.
Whether through the use of alternative, energy-saving systems and construction materials, sustainable design and construction practices, performance of energy conservation and sustainable building audits, or by managing energy conservation project installations, Broaddus & Associates leads owners to foster healthier working and living environments. Our staff can develop and implement a sustainability plan with tangible goals throughout the design and construction phases, ensuring the desired outcome is met.
