Building Beyond Carbon is a design firm that takes a systems approach to building design. We start with the building site and maximize the design to take advantage of what the site has to offer. The design, materials and energy generation systems are integrated into one cohesive system to provide comfort and healthy living space for the occupants by designing and building with the natural environment.

The integrated approach designs for the comfort and health of the occupants as well as the sustainability and health of the environment. The building design lowers the embodied carbon by selecting natural sustainable materials and operational carbon with high efficiency thermal envelops and renewable generation and storage. 

 

 It is very important to consult with us as early as possible

The most effective and inexpensive energy savings come in early design.
