HBGreen Design Initiative
Environmental stewardship is vitally important to our practice and our culture, and is a core strategy of both our design philosophy and our corporate operations. Our established ‘HBGreen Design’ framework engages and informs clients about sustainability, helping our project teams elevate design by utilizing software tools and design methods that greatly enhance energy efficiency, long-term building performance and guest well-being.
