Positively affecting people is the most important thing we do. Living this belief means creating and restoring buildings where people thrive. We recognize our responsibility to design a better world and we delight in the opportunity to shape our environment for the future.
At GBBN, we work with our clients to create strategic and visionary sustainability goals that align with the project budget and schedule. As part of our commitment to reduce carbon and eliminate waste, we strive for site-specific, regional approaches to design informed by research, rigorous analysis, and local conditions.
People are at their best in healthy and supportive environments. We look forward to working with Green Umbrella and other members of Cincinnati’s 2030 District to reduce energy use, water consumption, and transportation emissions by 50% in the coming decade.
