Sustainability

Our firm is committed to sustainability and continually seeking even better ways to imagine, re-imagine and reshape the built environment, discovering new ways to turn ideas into tangible reality. Our experience on some of the world`s most innovative and iconic buildings has enabled us to remain at the forefront of our industry, honing our skills and services in Building Information Modelling (BIM), low energy design, carbon footprint reduction, renewable energy systems, high-performance façades, recoverable materials and meeting green building certifications. To date, we have completed more than 45,000,000 square feet of LEED Certified Construction across North America.

Since the LEED system was first established, Adamson has been at the vanguard of delivering some of the world’s most sustainable buildings including the 30 Hudson Building in New Jersey, the first ever LEED-certified building in North America; the Hearst Tower renovation in New York (LEED Platinum Certified: EB, LEED Gold: C+S); Telus House Tower in Toronto (triple-certified - LEED Gold: C+S, LEED Platinum: O&M, LEED Gold: CI); and One Bryant Park (the first LEED Platinum Certified high-rise tower in New York).

Currently, we are working on several new buildings that are targeting LEED Platinum certification, Living Building Challenge and Net Zero.

In Europe, where the Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM) is the sustainability benchmark, we have completed a number of buildings that have achieved BREEAM Outstanding or Excellent ratings including One Bank Street (Outstanding); the Shard at London Bridge (Excellent); and 20 Fenchurch Street (Excellent).
