Sustainable & Resilient Design
We’re passionate about performance-driven design at Hoefer Wysocki. To that end, we believe that sustainability and resiliency are key to optimizing performance of both the building and its occupants. From design and construction through occupancy and operations, thoughtful stewardship of resources – including human, capital, and natural – is vital to ensuring our communities, and the places we live, work, learn and play, remain vibrant.
The recent pandemic, which has directly impacted the health, safety and livelihoods of millions, has underscored the importance of resilient design. As we navigate the post-pandemic new normal, we’re leveraging resilient design strategies to ensure adaptability in the face of threats to maintain optimal functioning and safety.
Knowledge & Experience
Whether pursuing a specific certification, or striving to reduce operational costs, or improve efficiencies, we believe sustainable and resilient design are integral to business success. We design each facility with cost-effective, sustainable solutions in mind. Sustainable design creates value by providing superior spaces while minimizing environmental impact and resource consumption. As stewards of the environment, as well as our client’s investment, we implement techniques and systems appropriate to the building’s use and location to maximize financial and productivity paybacks.
We know from experience that an integrated approach to design is a key to success. At the outset of each project, we engage all project participants in the development of the sustainable design strategy. This shared experience generates consensus, cultivates trust and keeps the team working toward a common goal from design through occupancy.
Our team includes dozens of LEED Accredited Professionals who have designed more than 50 LEED-certified projects. One recently completed project, Joint Base San Antonio Lackland Reid Medical Clinic Replacement in San Antonio, Texas, achieved LEED Gold certification. This new facility is among 31 LEED Building Design + Construction (BD+C) Healthcare Gold certified projects in the world to achieve this prestigious recognition. We’re one of the few companies experienced in U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) new LEED v4 rating system. We currently have two projects registered in LEED v4, and are continuously identifying and implementing new approaches to sustainable and resilient design.
