It’s about more than building green.
At The Schuster Group, sustainable principles and social equity have been a part of our core philosophy for the past 20 years. Our firm developed Seattle’s first Silver LEED® certified and Built Green™ condominium high-rise, was the first to deliver a Green Globes® certified multi-family high-rise project in the City of Seattle, and was the first in the city (and state of Washington) to receive double LEED® Existing Building and Commercial Interior certification on an office building, and was the first in the state to develop a Green Globes™ certified high-rise residential project.
Our sustainable principles can be summarized through three primary objectives:
- To reduce and/or eliminate the negative environmental effects of any new building projects which we invest in and develop
- To increase the efficiency of buildings’ operations
- To create quality environments for our customers, therefore contributing to the overall social fabric of our environment and civic structure
Sustainability is about more than building green, it’s about approaching a project holistically and designing and developing a project with low environmental impact, healthy environments, and sustainable value.
