As a design firm, A&A recognizes the global reach and ultimate impact we possess to change the circumstances of our environment. We fulfill this obligation by encouraging clients to view sustainability as an inherent and pervasive component of the design process. This philosophy is realized through our integrated approach to sustainable design; as an A/E/I firm, leaders from each discipline collaborate to resolve high performance building issues, addressing the inter-relationships between building sitting, exterior envelope, system design, and energy and resource consumption. A&A has instituted several levels of action to promote, advance, and achieve a comprehensive understanding of sustainable design practice throughout the firm.
