Our commitment to sustainable design is manifest in all phases of our work, from the discovery stage through construction, and at all times we will deliberately promote sustainable strategies. Through the employment of a highly collaborative process, intensive communication and the recognition of opportunities present in each project, BIA makes environmentally responsible decisions.
Having this niche expertise in-house allows BIA to offer its clients a full range of services under one roof. Being part of a full service engineering, environmental, surveying, and construction management team, enables us to develop seamless solutions to complex site condition and provides our clients with an integrated package.
BIA’s experts consist of Licensed Landscape Architects and LEED® Accredited Professionals. Our Professionals apply their expertise to all practice areas that BIA offers. We work directly with clients to develop site amenities, which meet their needs and exceed their expectations. For private and municipal clients, our projects range from small courtyards to an entire campus. From the start of the project, the client’s goals set the stage for design conditions and construction budgets.
Engineering is more than standard designs and plans. It is about creating unique design and construction practices that are cost-effective, healthier, and easier to maintain. The economies afforded by Sustainable or “Green” design strategies have become increasingly attractive to project owners who also seek the environmental and health and community benefits that come with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System® certified projects. LEED is a voluntary, consensus-based national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable buildings.
