Projects Designed Following
or Similar Guidelines
In our experience, those buildings designed to satisfy LEED or other green guidelines will achieve a higher qualitative performance than those set by building construction codes.
QPK's integrated practice helps clients achieve the highest level of sustainability within their budget. A sustainable approach produces buildings which are better for the environment, economic operations, and ultimately for the occupants.
