Sustainability / LEED Certification
As the stewards of society's physical infrastructure, it is incumbent on architects, civil engineers, and contractors  to lead the next shift in sustainable planning, design and construction. For this reason, we at ICON Design Group, Inc. have incorporated sustainable designs and planning into our list of services. When undertaking a project, we try to incorporate a number of sustainable and innovative designs, including the following:

1)       Helping the Owner select a site or road orientation that minimizes environmental impacts,

2)       Implementing a stormwater management plan that protects receiving stream channels from excessive environmental impacts,

3)       Incorporating pervious pavement, porous concrete, and efficient hardscapes into the design for improved groundwater recharge and infiltration,

4)       Including mass transit options, bicycle facilities, and preferred parking for fuel-efficient vehicles into the site layout to reduce pollution and land development impacts from automobile use,

5)       Maximizing open space while still meeting zoning requirements to provide a high ratio of open space to development footprint,

6)       Providing options that minimize impacts on microclimates and wildlife habitats,

7)       Incorporating lighting options that minimize light trespass from the building and site and reduce development impact from lighting on nocturnal environments,

8)       Designing the landscape with native or adapted plants to reduce or eliminate irrigation requirements,

9)       Promoting the use of natural and renewable products into the design to minimize the use and depletion of finite raw materials and long-cycle renewable materials by replacing them with recycled, reused, or rapidly renewable materials.

There are many possibilities when incorporating sustainable designs into a project, and here at ICON Design Group, Inc., we take each project and determine the most efficient and sustainable design possible, while keeping in mind our Client’s  budget.  With a LEED Accredited Professional on staff, we are sure to provide our Clients with the most up-to-date and relevant information on how to bring their projects to certification.
