Chicago– We were very excited to work with NRDC on it’s Chicago office move and fit-out. Our Senior Consultant, Eileen Quigley, inspired our client to be the first to pursue the Living Building Challenge Petal Certification in an office fit-out. Once again NRDC showed it’s willingness to lead. Our involvement covered every step of the project, beginning with site selection to the certification process, keeping the project as close to on-time and on-budget as possible while keeping it as sustainable as possible.

Beijing – We are also proud to have helped NRDC with retrofitting their Beijing office. The office achieved Living Building Challenge Petal Certification, the first LBC project in China. One highlight of the office is the Plyboo bamboo flooring and desk cover in reception, which has cultural significance in China and adds a natural feel to the office. The scene on the pantry glass wall is another highlight and represents some of the work that NRDC does through the program, such as supporting renewable energy and recycling.
