"LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is changing the way we think about how buildings and communities are planned, constructed, maintained and operated...
LEED works for all buildings—from homes to corporate headquarters—at all phases of development."
Our Principal Architect is currently certified for Building Design and Construction, a LEED certification that is applicable to all new construction and major renovation projects, and we strive to achieve environmental responsibility in all our designs.

We also are only a freeway exit away from Joint Base Lewis McChord, and a few miles away from hubs of activity like Tacoma, Point Defiance, University Place, and Steilicoom.
