Sustainable Design Services
Operating Energy Optimization
Energy Efficiency Design Services, Energy Modeling and Benchmarking, Predicted Energy Use Intensity (pEUI) Reduction
At MG2, building energy performance is part of the design process, not an afterthought. We benchmark our projects, leverage the power of energy modeling to inform design decisions, and strive for lower levels of predicted energy use intensity (pEUI) from the outset.
Embodied Carbon Reduction
Carbon Footprint Analysis, Sustainable Building Materials and Assembly Selection, Life-Cycle Assessment (LCA) Services
Everything we build, from individual materials to assemblies to entire buildings, has CO2 “trapped” in it, known as embodied carbon. MG2 is equipped to help reduce the embodied carbon footprint of our designs through product-phase carbon analyses or full-blown life-cycle assessments (LCA).
Sustainable Materials Sourcing
Eco-Friendly Materials Specification and Selection, Sustainable Finishes and Fixtures Sourcing, Green Building Certification Support
MG2 works with our partners to vet specifications and ensure they align with the goals for desired certifications or brand guidelines. Our sustainability materials experts help clients select from a range of fixtures, finishes, and materials.
Water Use Reduction
Water-Efficient Architecture Services, Irrigation and Indoor Water Use Optimization, and Sustainable Landscape Architecture Partnerships
Designing for optimized water usage is easier than many people think. At MG2, we partner with MEP engineers and landscape architects to ensure our designs are optimized for indoor and irrigation water uses.
Sustainable Architecture & Design Consulting
Customized Sustainability Guidelines, Carbon Footprint Analysis, Regulatory Compliance Support, Green Building Program Recommendations
Beginning with goal alignment, our experts are equipped to create custom-tailored sustainability guidelines, best practices, and program recommendations based on our client’s unique variables. MG2 evaluates the carbon footprint of existing designs and builds, analyzes specific regulations, and helps implement compliance requirements.
