ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

Ronald Frink Architects (RFA) designs projects with implicit environmental consciousness.  While we foster sustainability as a guiding principle in the planning and design of all our architectural and interiors projects, the core of our philosophy is that sustainable design is good for business and good for our collective future.

We believe the core goal of all sustainable design is based within a successful multi-disciplinary collaboration, which considers the integration and assessment of both the environmental applications along with the economic benefits that enhance building, human and environmental performance for our clients.

In addition to complying with current local and state sustainable building codes, the RFA Team uses its expertise to help our clients pursue a LEED rating when appropriate for our clients.  We are also sensitive that LEED certification may not be a feasible commitment for each client. We strive to optimize sustainable practices within the context of a client’s requirements throughout the design and construction phases, as well as to add value over time to ongoing occupancy, operations and maintenance of the project.

RFA strives to continually improve the firm and increase our positive contribution in support of each of our clients and projects to reach achievable environmental, social, aesthetic, physical, and economic solutions through business and design practices that are consistent with our broader social and environmental values.
