SUSTAINABILITY

At Alliiance, we believe in reducing the impact of the built environment on climate change, lessening the strain on finite natural resources, and improving the health and performance of our buildings. We’ve been an active proponent of sustainable design practices throughout our firm’s history.

In 1980, we won a national design award for a campus building at the University of Minnesota that incorporated visible trombe wall and ice storage cooling technology. For Hennepin County, our 1995 Public Works project became the model for the Minnesota Sustainable Design Guide. Recently we have designed a number of LEED Gold projects including St. Jude Medical Technology Center.

Today, nearly all of our professional staff at Alliiance are LEED accredited, and most of our significant buildings meet LEED certification standards. Sustainability design goals are fully embedded into our project activities. Alliiance supports The American Institute of Architect’s 2030 Commitment to make the built environment carbon-neutral before mid-century.
