ARC's Commitment to the Environment
ARC is dedicated to evaluating alternate design concepts for all of our projects with the goal of promoting sustainable and healthful environments as well as improving the building’s overall performance. To date, more than 65% of the professional staff are LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals who are actively involved in the design and review of all projects – regardless of whether or not LEED Certification is being pursued - to promote sustainable standards for energy consumption, resource preservation and green environments. The success of ARC’s LEED approach and process is demonstrated by our firm’s numerous certified projects which include Gold, Silver and Certified level ratings. Additionally, ARC has signed onto the AIA 2030 Challenge in an effort to promote green office practices within our own firm.
