Sustainability is integral to BWBR:
Performance design and sustainability are integral parts of BWBR’s design process, whether it is optimizing the project’s use of energy and water resources, reducing the operational and embodied carbon footprint, achieving industry recognized sustainability standards, or meeting financial and wellbeing goals. Together with design engineers, BWBR has successfully evaluated energy and carbon reduction strategies using energy modeling and life cycle analysis on numerous projects.
Recognizing the multiple, urgent forces happening in the world today — and the opportunity the built environment can have in these areas — BWBR implemented a Performance Baseline based on the AIA’s Framework for Design Excellence. The Framework is built around 10 measures touching on many aspects of life and allowing a holistic view of a project. BWBR uses these measures tied with metrics (Energy Use Intensity (EUI), water consumption, carbon tracking, etc.) to determine priorities and performance goals for each project.
