Ask the Expert: Energy, Environment, & Sustainability in the Built Environment

Energy / Environment / Sustainability are issues highlighted regularly by companies, governments, and the public. The challenge is there are a lot of different ways to discuss all three issues and everyone’s perspective is different based on their wants, needs and budget.

At VIP Structures, the goal of our architects, engineers, and construction team is to help our clients understand their sustainability objectives and achieve them within their budget.

One of our current projects is helping a client achieve LEED certification for their new office space. Chase Design, a design and business consulting firm, hired VIP as the design-builder on its new 42,000 square foot office space in Downtown Syracuse’s The Post (Standard) building.

Another project was helping a client with a historic rehabilitation and preservation. Paulus Development, a real estate development company, hired VIP’s architects and engineers for the recently completed Smith Supply Warehouse, a 38-unit, mixed-use building in Downtown Syracuse.

Although each project achieves sustainability differently, VIP’s process of helping the client remains the same with clear communication, critical thinking, and timely execution.
