Strategies to reduce demand and encourage re-use of non-potable water.

WASTE

Strategies to reduce, filter and reuse wastewater and solid waste.

MATERIALS

Strategies to reduce the environmental impact of building materials and maximize occupant safety.

TOOLS

Strategies that maximize a project’s potential and ensure the design functionality with far-reaching tools.

By providing sophisticated performance analysis, SONNY & SONS’s solutions enable clients to estimate, compare and optimize the energy, water, carbon and financial benefits of relevant design strategies. This allows clients to effectively balance the investment between various building strategies, to maximize capital efficiency, minimize energy and water use and create high performing sustainable building designs at low cost.

1. ENERGY

This section covers strategies that reduce operational energy and costs. Incorporating design measures such as daylight and clean air access not only leads to higher performance buildings, but increases health, safety and productivity of occupants.

4. MATERIALS

Material harvest, manufacturing, installation and disposal contribute to natural resource depletion, carbon emissions and landfill contributions. This section covers strategies that reduce the environmental impact of building materials through the use of regional, recycled, recyclable and/or salvaged materials, as well as enhance indoor air quality through reduction of chemical and particle emissions.
