SBA seeks to reduce negative impacts on the environment, and the health and comfort of building occupants, thereby improving building performance. The basic objectives of sustainability are to reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste, and create healthy, productive environments.
SBA’s sustainable design principles include:
- Optimize site potential;
- Minimize non-renewable energy consumption;
- Utilize eco-friendly alternative energy sources;
- Use environmentally preferable or recycled products and materials;
- Protect and conserve water sources and utilization of water purification systems;
- Enhance indoor environmental quality.
SBA integrates the sustainable philosophy into every phase of their process from design, to manufacturing, to delivery, and finally to construction. Utilizing a sustainable design philosophy encourages decisions at each phase of the design process that will reduce negative impacts on the environment and the health of the occupants, without compromising the bottom line.
SBA uses an integrated, holistic approach that encourages the compromise and tradeoffs required to make an affordable product that actually works as designed. Such an integrated approach positively impacts all phases of a building’s life-cycle, including: design; construction; operation; and decommissioning.
