Environmental Design

At Rich Design Studios we realize each property is unique. So, whether it’s for a LEED project or not, we evaluate all of our work for opportunities to integrate best management practices and sustainable design techniques into the project development whenever it’s appropriate. We are also skilled at blending these various practices & techniques into existing developments, where they must seamlessly blend into the built environment and its surroundings. At RDS we are adept at identifying the appropriate method(s) for use and then incorporating them into a design in the most thoughtful, creative, aesthetic and efficient manner.
