Sustainable Design

PMCA believes that Environmentally Sustainable Design can be achieved when the whole project team are committed to the vision and that the macro and micro issues are considered in parallel to formulate solutions.

PMCA has Sustainability (Green) Teams established in all our studios. Green Teams are integrated early into every design process and take a leading role in the majority of PMCA projects.

Currently there are a number of Accredited Professionals in all PMCA studios including GBCA Green Star, LEED. This number is increasing at a rapid rate.

The sustainable design process recognizes that interior selection on materials - and the energy required to extract or create them - are not infinite and must be carefully considered during all aspects of design and construction, and even post-construction. Additionally, a sustainable office space incorporates natural systems from daylight to fresh air, providing a superior environment for the corporation as well as a better long-term contribution to the surrounding environment.
