Building Science: A Commitment to Sustainable Design

Over the years, we have expanded what sustainability means to us by growing our expertise and training, redefining workplace energy efficiency, developing new energy modeling methods and approaches, learning how equity and inclusion impact design, and harnessing the collaboration of our multidisciplinary team to find new ways to innovate. Our paramount responsibility as designers is to create solutions focused on the end users, as well as our communities, ecosystems, and the planet.

Building Science Services:

  • Certifications and ratings systems administration including LEED, WELL, and Living Building Challenge
  • Energy Audits
  • Energy incentives including federal tax credits and utility rebates

2022 Sustainability Report

Learn more about TowerPinkster’s sustainable goal, initiatives, and accomplishments in 2022.

This past year, our team designed new builds that feature cutting-edge sustainable measures. However, we thrive on taking existing buildings and renovating them to a point where they perform better than ever. Our projects received recognition for sustainable practices and innovative thinking from the USGBC and AIA.

AIA 2030 Commitment

As signatories of the AIA 2023 Commitment, we seek collaboration and connection in every project and encourage others to join us. It is a call to action and a reminder that our Sustainability Action Plan is dynamic and ever-evolving.

The 2030 Commitment is borne out of the need for accurate reporting of actual building performance. As such, we realize there is a fundamental core message in this work: to be responsible and accountable for our community, near and far, in both time and space. Projects are reported through an online database, the Design Data Exchange (DDX), to track baseline, predicted, and actual Energy Use Intensity (EUI). Energy Use Intensity is a measure that normalizes energy use (kBtu) over area (square feet) for an entire year. This provides an industry metric, or shared language, for transparency in building performance.

It is a call to action for us and our neighbors. It is a reminder that our Sustainability Action Plan, which all 2030 Commitment signatories are asked to create, is meant to be dynamic and ever-growing. So we seek collaboration and connection in this ongoing work and encourage others to join us. Read more.
