There continues to be a large trend in municipal green building policies and practices. A growing number of local and federal governments recognize that changing building practices is a major way to conserve natural resources, reduce pollution, and improve the health of our global community.
Civic projects are some of our most visible projects. They include libraries, courthouses, public universities, K-12 schools, cities and counties (including Denver, Thornton, Ft. Collins, and others) and work with federal agencies (including the GSA, US Navy, US Forest Service, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory). These projects range from minimal square footage to millions of square feet. No two are alike in size, design, or goals, however, the trend that remains true is these projects are leading the way for sustainable design.
The US government has vowed carbon neutrality by 2030, and a big part of meeting this goal is to retrofit existing buildings and ensure new buildings are designed and constructed to the highest green building and energy efficient standards. Most of our civic work is LEED Gold+ and beat current energy code compliance standards.
In 2014 The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business, selected Group14 as the recipient of the 2014 Protégé Award. We are a certified WBE and WOSB through the WBENC network and a certified DBE-SBE-WBE by City and County of Denver. We are proud to continue to serve with DIA, CCD, GSA, NREL and our other clients in this sector leading the charge in sustainable buildings and building practices.
