We began thoughtful balance, in 2005 with the realization that sustainable building practices were not something that we needed the right clients or projects in order to utilize; but were a way of approaching design that we are able to always implement. Everyone wants healthy buildings that are inexpensive to operate, maintain, and are made from durable materials. We operate from the basic premise that all buildings that we create will be analyzed for the footprint they make. Environmental stewardship is what we do and is an integral part of the services we provide. We love projects that have a social or community mission, that are born from the idea that we can all make the world a better place.
