Structurally, both steel and concrete are recyclable although concrete at times may be more advantageous due to its thermal mass.

As structural engineers, our contribution to meet desired sustainability and LEED™ targets is to help minimize the budget impact from HVAC systems on the structure.  We will work with the MEP to keep the project coordinated through all stages.

Our Building Envelope Group can perform a thorough analysis of the façade for compliance with the Energy Conservation Code of New York State.

We currently have staff members who are LEED™ certified.
