The SBS Green Manifesto

At Stanley, Beaman and Sears, Sustainability is not just a buzzword; it’s part of our DNA. Our vision is to incorporate green principles into everything we do, from innovative design through engineering and construction. We’re committed to taking a holistic approach to serving our clients, looking closely at nature for inspiration (Biomimicry) and striving to meet the highest standards of design set forth by BREAM, LEED, Cradle-to-Cradle Design and beyond.

For every project we do, whether in urban heartlands or rural backlands, we look closely at the local trends, culture, environmental and socioeconomic conditions, and we adapt our design accordingly with sustainability in mind. Our goal is to design zero net energy buildings [alongside the 2030 challenge] that push the limit on harvesting natural resources and offsetting energy intake.

At Stanley, Beaman and Sears, we take sustainability personally, and we hope you will too.
