According to ARCHITECT, the magazine of the American Institute of Architects, Ziger/Snead ranks 37th in the sustainability category. Key to the firm’s top ranking is its reporting participation in the AIA’s 2030 Commitment program, with the goal of achieving a carbon neutral built environment by the year 2030. The recently completed Center for Parks & People exemplifies the firm’s commitment to sustainability with achievement of LEED Platinum Certification.
The annual ARCHITECT 50 program ranks the best architecture firms in the U.S. based on business performance, design excellence, and sustainability. This is the eighth year the magazine has conducted the annual survey and ranking.
Ziger/Snead believes the way we live, build, commute and consume has a significant impact on the environment, economy and society at individual and global scales, and our future depends to a large degree on sustainable architecture. Through an integrated approach to design, engineering, and construction, we actively seek design solutions that optimize value relative to initial investment and long term environmental, economic, and social cost over the lifetime of a building.
Published monthly, ARCHITECT magazine contains inspirational and informational editorial focused on industry trends, design, technology, local markets, products, culture and business of architecture.
