Eastcastle Place, Milwaukee, WI John Korom,

Will you be applying principles of sustainable or “green” design to long-term care projects and, if so, how?

Clients, especially those in the Chicago area, are looking to us to guide them through educated, sustainable decisions. Whether going for LEED accreditation or not, we are using LEED checklists to address sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and the atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor environmental quality. Landscaped roofscapes and PVC white roofs, high energy-compliant appliances, high energy-efficient building envelopes, solar lighting and low VOC products are some of the specific elements being incorporated into several of our projects.
