“Cuningham Group has a long track record of sustainable design achievement, initiated by John Cuningham himself. In the last few years, we have made many efforts to re-capture a leadership position among design firms, starting with our signing the 2030 Challenge and the 2030 China Accord. We are constantly pushing our design teams, clients, and industry partners to reduce energy and water use, improve well-being for our building occupants, and to achieve resiliency in the face of external hazards. We have made great strides, but we have a long way to go. I am enthusiastic that a heightened awareness and renewed sense of urgency will propel us toward our goal of designing in a way that respects all living things.”

As part of our continual efforts to highlight and refine issues of sustainability and wellness across all of our offices, in 2018 we launched a year-long program to increase awareness of and practices that support Sustainable Design in our own offices. We decided to combine elements of the WELL building rating system with more typical resource efficiency strategies. The result: a month-by-month analysis of 10 specific issues.
February – Water
March – Plug Loads
