After getting its start in one of the greatest National Parks in the world, Yosemite National Park, the firm of Lars Andersen & Associates, Inc. has remained keenly aware of the importance of sustainable practices in order to maintain the beauty of the landscape. With this in mind, our firm has developed the belief that it is our responsibility as building industry professionals to act as stewards for the environment in our designs which utilize “green practices” whenever possible. With our LEED Accredited staff, we are able to work as a leader in the industry in developing new ideas and assuring that each project is as environmentally friendly as the client would like it to be. In order to lead the way on innovative designs and practices our staff stays up to date on ways to maintain environmental sensitivity and continually strives for responsible developments, incorporating “green” concepts at all stages of any given project from conception to completion.
We believe it is essential to inform our consultants and clients on environmental repercussions and develop projects accordingly in order to ensure that impacts of development are mitigated whenever possible. We work to ensure that without compromising the quality of a project, we approach it with careful attention to the sustainability of the development, keeping all of our projects in line with our client’s goals.
