We are committed to sustainability and environmental conservation. We incorporate green building techniques and materials whenever feasible, and often with no impact on the overall budget through the use of daylight, and careful attention to the building envelope. We can also expedite the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification process.

EGL Architecture is a member of the Hudson Valley Branch of the US Green Building Council, and the principal, Emma Gonzalez-Laders serves in the Programs and Steering committees. Emma is a LEED Accredited Professional; a credential given to building professionals who demonstrate a thorough understanding of green building practices and principles.

EGL Architecture is a Business Partner with NYSERDA's Commercial Lighting Program and delivers The Right Light℠ to our clients.

We are also an Energy Star Partner and a friend of the Green Building Initiative.
