Building Green

KPW believes in developing integrated engineering solutions for structures, resulting in intelligent design that lessens construction costs, while improving long-term operating costs for the owner. Working with architects and other industry leaders gives way to concise understanding and ability to respond to issues, such as exposed structures, lighting, stacking, thermal mass, cooling, heat-gain strategies, and construction practices.
