Social and environmental responsibility are embedded into our firm and our investments. Our goal is to lead the field by reducing our impact on the planet and improving the quality of life in the communities we serve.
The Prado Group works with industry experts and team members including architects, land planners and engineers to ensure that sustainable strategies are in place from the very beginning of the project conception and design. Our buildings reach beyond minimums and have achieved LEED Gold and Platinum distinctions in addition to Green Point and SITEs leadership. We are collaborating with engineers on WELL design (wellness), REDi (resilience) and Zero Net Energy strategies along with robust approaches to carbon sequestration and water reuse including grey water systems, storm water collection, vegetative roofs and central energy systems.
Our projects also provide habitats for endangered species including green roof butterfly habitats and pollinator boulevards adjacent to the sites. Our sustainable design philosophy requires us to make deliberate decisions at each phase of the design process including architecture, energy modeling & analysis, and interior design.
