Every design decision has an impact. We help you make it positive.

Every design fits into a bigger picture. That’s why sustainability isn’t an additional service at RDG; it’s part of everything we do for you. From the start, our team considers the impact on people, communities, budgets and the environment to arrive at the best possible balance. The result goes far beyond lower energy bills to improving health and air quality, increasing productivity and using resources more efficiently.  No matter what your design goals are, we’ll help you find the ideal balance to benefit people, planet and profit.

Living Our Principles

Our commitment to sustainability reaches deeper than design to how we live our daily lives — from our offices and homes to recycling programs, transportation and overall health.
