Sustainability

Sustainable Development ensures that meeting today’s needs does not compromise the ability of future generations to meet their needs. By focusing on the three spheres that frame sustainability – environmental, social, and economic – buildings can be developed and facilities designed in a responsible way to help reduce consumption of non-renewable resources, minimize waste, and enhance ecosystem services.

Utilizing a Sustainable Design philosophy encourages the identification and implementation of practical and measurable green building and land use solutions at each phase of the development process. It is an integrated multi-disciplinary approach that positively impacts all phases of a project’s lifecycle including building design, construction, operations, maintenance, and reuse.

Rating systems provide detailed design strategies to address building and site performance. Assessment methodologies like LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design), Green Globes, and SITES (Sustainable Sites Initiate) offer additional incentives to optimize project outcomes.

WMF is committed to Sustainable Development and a member of the US Green Building Council. Currently, WMF has six LEED Accredited Professionals on staff and multiple rated projects built and under construction.
