Sustainability Practices


Our Philosophy

At PFW Architects, sustainability is not just a discussion at the onset of a project but rather a philosophy of design and building strategies that translate into all of our buildings.


We take great pride in our approach towards environmentally sensitive and sustainable architecture. In all of our projects we look for every opportunity to maximize the positive aspects of a project through site planning, building massing, daylighting, material selection, building systems and methods of construction.

For a building to be truly sustainable, it must be economically feasible and functional for the long term. By working closely with our clients, we design buildings that will be usable well into the future, making them sustainable in every sense. PFW has a long history of designing sustainable buildings that range from residential to commercial and high rise buildings.
