How we serve clients and communities

We understand the implications sustainable design has on business, employees, clients and end-users. We also know that thoughtful design solutions demand a holistic approach and balance, and we’ve made it our goal to help you discover your project’s sustainability sweet spot — the intersection of operational efficiencies and cost savings with environmental improvements and social responsibilities. We believe that this approach, addressed from our multi-discipline and multi-industry perspectives, leads to the best results for clients and communities alike.

How we improve ourselves

GS&P has developed a sustainability policy to help us proactively benchmark, evaluate and improve our internal operations. In keeping with our participation in the AIA 2030 Commitment, we are continually seeking ways to reduce our energy consumption and waste, including firmwide operational enhancements, a mass transit incentive program, telecommuting, videoconferencing, and waste reduction programs.
