  • Energy Solutions
    • New high performance retail/restaurant bldgs. Can consume up to 50% less energy than comparable bldgs. With designs that integrate energy-efficient lighting fixtures with daylighting systems to substantially reduce electric lighting and cooling loads.
    • ‘ Alla Luce ’ will utilize renewable energy such as solar energy, solar water heating and geothermal heat pump units.
    • Additionally energy smart choices about building site, envelope and mechanical systems are factored into the design & contribute to savings.
