The uncertainty of our climate future demands that we as designers embrace sustainable practices in every facet of our work. Prioritizing sustainability is not just a mantra; it offers a vision forward in a rapidly-changing world as a means to educate, innovate and push our work farther than ever before.

Here at ROSSETTI, we are addressing these critical issues through the development of our Sustainability Action Plan, led by the ROSSETTI Sustainability Lab. Launched in March of 2021, the lab is a vital component of a larger overall initiative to integrate sustainable practices into our work through learning, exchange, discourse, and outreach.

The Sustainability Lab is represented by a cross-section of passionate ROSSETTI employees across Creative, Technical, and Project Management. We discuss the many facets of sustainable design, supply meaningful feedback for ongoing projects, and collectively implement tools for sustainable design and marketing strategies across the firm.

Our work has been threefold:

1. Discussion: Create a seedbed for ongoing discourse around sustainability and design.

2. Outreach/Workshops: Garner expertise and exchange ideas with others in the field.

3. Implementation: Crowd-source ideas through feedback and design charrettes on ongoing projects. Test and benchmark projects with energy modeling and other tools.

We believe that sustainability is key to your project’s success. As your design partner, we leverage our experience, passion and expertise to help you meet and exceed your project’s sustainability goals. For our clients, sustainable strategies can provide benefits such as:

A) Lower operating and lower term cost

B) Responsible environmental and community benefits

C) Access to green funds, tax breaks, and incentives for risk mitigation

D) Improved community reputation

E) Occupant health benefits

F) Improved productivity and retention

Using our signature Return on DesignTM analytics process, we demonstrate to our clients the quantifiable value of environmentally-friendly design, and its potential for a positive impact on their bottom line. ROD services for sustainability can include market studies, industry benchmarking, partnership strategies, and in-depth pro forma of the building with ROI projections for targeted sustainability approaches.
