Sustainability Minded Leads To Success

A consultant from an architecture firm from New York City introduced Jorge to the sustainability concept.  He discovered that sustainability is a great way to give purpose to the design. Clients want sustainability and having the tool to design with sustainability is essential.

“Having this lever of energy modeling and letting the client know what the consequences of their decisions became a powerful tool.” – Jorge Lopez

Consequently, the architecture firm began to design LEED buildings.
