Neal Prince Studio understands the need for safeguarding natural resources for future generations – this is by far the most important responsibility we have as design professionals. As an active member and advocate of the US Green Buildings Council, Neal Prince Studio has 3 LEED Credentialed professionals on staff. In addition, we were one of the first architectural firms to design an Earthcraft home in the city of Greenville, and we have currently completed 29 Energy Star Certified homes.
We approach environmental performance from a ‘whole building’ perspective for your home’s life cycle. This includes, as a minimum, design with environmental emphasis on the following features:
• Site design analysis
• Controlled water usage
• Passive solar and day lighting techniques
• Waste minimization (During & Post Construction)
• Recycled materials and finishes
• High performance windows and doors
• Mechanical and insulation systems
• Controlled VOC levels
We believe that sustainable design must be flexible to changing circumstances, consume fewer resources and reinforce the fabric of the community. To us, sustainable design is a logical expression of our mandate to protect the health, safety, and welfare of our clients.
