At Corgan, we believe that at the heart of intelligent, sensible design is a cohesive and sensitive approach to the environment. In our projects, we endeavor to explore solutions with our clients and engineering consultants that balance the built and natural environments through ecology, site planning, conservation, preservation, cultural heritage, building massing, material selection, building systems, economics and construction methodologies. If you want to learn more about our commitment to sustainability, please follow this link to our CSR Report.
Together with our clients, we work to establish project performance goals early in the design process, such as water efficiency goals, energy conservation goals, lighting power density goals, landscape efficiency goals, building volume requirements and clear height demands. This drives the project design, massing and articulation.
As a testament of our commitment to sustainability, our Dallas headquarters is housed in our own LEED Silver certified building. At the time, there were approximately 125 LEED certified buildings in the world.
