BAR Architects mission is to design healthy, durable, beautiful and efficient buildings that improve the quality of life for users and communities. Our goal is restorative; leaving a vital planet for future generations.
Working together with our clients, we utilize a holistic approach to planning and architecture, providing the best sustainable solutions responsive to their needs. Applying our collective creativity, experience, vision and hard work, we believe we can make a difference. Our commitment to sustainability begins with where and how we work and extends to our projects and clients.
We continually educate ourselves about sustainable design through participation in the US Green Building Council as well as other similar organizations, conducting in-house sustainability seminars, and by hosting bi-annual LEED accreditation seminars for staff and clients. As a result, all design teams have the knowledge, experience and resources to proactively guide our projects toward sustainable design solutions and over 85% of our professional staff is LEED accredited . Our most recent efforts include our new policy of designing to a minimum of LEED Silver equivalency and conducting periodic in-house sustainability reviews for all of our projects.
