BRPH cares about the environment and is committed to operating in a holistically sustainable manner to benefit our employees, clients, and community. We aim to minimize the physical and energy resources used to conduct our business through efficient use of resources and promoting our goals to REDUCE, RECYCLE, REUSE and RETHINK.

Going Above and Beyond for the U.S. Air Force

Originally contracted to be a LEED® Silver building, BRPH designed the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force’s Fourth Building with maximum efficiency, ultimately earning LEED® Gold certification. This was made possible by incorporating an innovative design with locally sourced building materials, including a focus on those made from recycled content, optimized energy performance from new mechanical and electrical systems and water efficient landscaping. The building now sees a 36% total reduction in water use, accompanied with a 39% energy cost savings.
