From the rapidly expanding urban frontier of the Colorado Front Range, to the ecologically sensitive environs of the Rocky Mountains, the design and construction of the built environment carries a new responsibility to leave a sustainable legacy for future generations.

David strives to seemlessly integrates sustainable design principles into each distinctive project.

Proper orientation of buildings and site amenities to prevailing environmental and climatic conditions reveal opportunities for passive heating and cooling design strategies. This attention to orientation enhances interior comfort and convenience while reducing energy and maintenance costs. Innovative design solutions increase quality of life and reduce dependence on carbon-based fuel sources.

Careful space planning can meet inhabitant's programming needs while reducing up front building expense and reducuing energy use and maintenance costs during the life of the building.

The proper selection of durable, low-maintenance, long-lasting materials contributes to a sustainable project solution by reducing or eliminating material replacement.
