Today’s new buildings should still be here in the 22nd century because they are built to last and built to be loved (and therefore they will be maintained and protected over time).
Buildings should work in every way: they should be beautiful, durable, healthy, comfortable, and less costly to operate and maintain. In most cases, they should produce more energy than they consume. While most in our industry do the minimum necessary to satisfy building codes, we invest thousands of hours each year to R&D, testing, and monitoring to learn how to make the best possible buildings for you.
Building is not a static endeavor. It’s a process of embracing new learning and engaging in continuous improvement of systems and approaches. Craft does not end with beautiful wood and exquisite joinery. It extends to the careful exterior detailing and application of building science that ensures long-term durability and comfort.
