Sustainable DesignLorraine M. Dailey is a LEED Green Associate

The goal of sustainable design in architecture is to design buildings and spaces with minimal impact on the environment, reduced usage of non-renewable resources, and an emphasis on a connection with the natural environment. It is more than just a trend in the industry today; it is becoming the new standard for progressive, responsible design.
