Sustainable Design

Our landscape architects, planners and engineers seek every opportunity to incorporate sustainable design into projects for the viability of your business and community. Using sustainability as a fundamental design element from the conceptual planning phase through site design and construction, our design team implements green planning and design principles that carry with them not only environmental but also economic benefits.

Adaptive site redevelopment of brownfields, grayfields and urban infill projects as well as innovative incorporation of site amenities and materials reduce a project’s carbon footprint. By approaching projects with this mindset, RETTEW emphasizes preserving and augmenting green development wherever feasible, protecting native plant and animal habitat, implementing stormwater best management practices and managing energy consumption. By mitigating environmental impacts and proactively managing projects with an eye to durable construction and maintenance costs, RETTEW plans and designs successful sustainable projects and spaces with long-term benefits for the clients and communities we serve.
