Long before it was fashionable and long before LEED®, GSBS was incorporating sustainable design components like daylighting, high-performance building systems and energy efficiency—resulting in efficient designs with minimal maintenance. We think that’s wise stewardship of our client’s resources and the natural resources we share with the rest of the planet.
We aspire to Sustainable Design Excellence—to go above and beyond what is expected. These three words describe our approach to every single project we undertake.
