updateA year and a half collaboration yields a new sustainable headquarters for the firm, sited adjacent to the preserved Wightman’s Farm. We celebrated a successful opening event on April 30th, 2015 with many of our friends and families, with food, drinks, live music, and panorama views from the deck with the late spring breeze… and many laughs.

Our Harding office offers beautiful views of open fields, providing a tranquil setting that exemplifies the still rural nature of Harding Township. The site’s natural features were integrated into the building: Some features include:

  • A 1,500 sf open deck provides views to open fields beyond
  • Reducing impervious surface by using grass block turf for one third of parking spaces
  • Rain water collection and irrigation systems to avoid tap water landscaping irrigation
  • Passive ventilation and cooling for entire building by carefully located windows and deep overhangs
  • Incorporating recycled and regional materials, and reusing existing building materials
  • Geothermal heating and cooling system with a rooftop economizer provide HVAC needs
  • A solar hot water system for all hot water use, low flow plumbing fixtures save 47% water usage
  • Direct/indirect LED light fixtures throughout to save energy and reduce mercury content
  • Sustainable furniture system contains 79% recycled content, free of PVC, Hexavalent chrome and PBDE’s
