Sustainable Design

To us, sustainable design is second nature.

Sustainable design is something we live and breathe at WTW. It’s ingrained in our process, and it informs every design decision. Unlike other firms, it’s not an add-on service; it’s part of our daily work.

Our integrated, holistic approach positively impacts every phase of a building’s life cycle. It encourages decisions that promote renewable resources, minimize waste and create healthy, productive environments. We only introduce sustainable design concepts that are easily understandable and economically viable.

To us, sustainable design is more than meeting LEED credits or lowering operating costs. It’s more than low VOC materials, daylight harvesting, or automated shading systems. It’s a belief that we shouldn’t create what we don’t need, and that every building can become a teaching tool for how to live a sustainable life.
