Sustainable Design

With buildings consuming 60 percent of energy in the U.S. and water becoming increasingly scarce, architects have a vital role in creating sustainable, healthy environments. At Ziegler Cooper Architects, we recognize our responsibility to be good stewards of our natural resources — sustainability is foremost in our approach to design. We maintain a corporate and personal commitment to advancing urban concepts that creatively bring people together in walkable communities.

A member of the U.S. Green Building Council, we provide ongoing education to our employees through an in-house LEED committee. In our goal to achieve net-zero and carbon-neutral buildings, we track building performance through LEED certification as well as Energy Star.
