Sustainable Design

KCCT joined the U.S. Green Building Council in 2001 because we care about making eco-intelligent decisions. Our commitment to the environment focuses on energy and resource conservation. We advocate robust passive energy conservation systems based on pragmatic cost, as well as operational and maintenance considerations. The success of this approach is reflected in our many LEED certified projects at home and abroad.

Our projects incorporate sustainable design and are registered with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), resulting in significant reductions in energy consumption. Often they are the first and only LEED certified facilities in their respective countries. Consider our recent designs of U.S. diplomatic facilities in Valletta, Malta and Monterrey, Mexico. Energy conservation strategies, including large integrated photovoltaic arrays, advanced water storage and conservation strategies, xeriscape site development, on-site sewage treatment and water reclamation, building orientation, sun shading, solar hot water, and occupancy and daylight sensors to reduce energy costs, are among the highlights.
