Data-Driven Design

Driven by Data, Proven by Results

Collaborate, innovate, create, evaluate. These are the foundational concepts of our performance-based design philosophy. Our success is measured using real data, collected over time and proven in real-world applications. Models may set an expectation, but they don't provide proof. Measuring real data like Energy Use Intensity, Construction Costs, Operational Costs and Occupant Satisfaction provides us with the evidence we need to evaluate our successes and improve our processes.

As W. Edwards Demming said, "You cannot manage what you do not measure." So we measure it all, and our industry-leading benchmarking program spans decades and includes all types of buildings.
