“Imagine what a world of prosperity and health in the future will look like, and begin designing it right now.”

With this project, Redside brought LEED Silver certification and a much needed facelift to a suburban strip mall in Vancouver, Wash. The firm’s green building practices breathed new life into the facility while still maintaining a competitive edge in terms of cost per square foot. Improvements included asphalt replacement with native landscaping to reduce storm water runoff, energy-efficient roof insulation, material reuse, skylight installation and operable windows.
