SEHA has been designing sustainable architecture since the 1980’s with its start in the U.S. Virgin Islands amidst limited resources and exorbitant electricity rates. SEHA has engaged alternate energy and renewable resources on hundreds of projects. The firm has completed energy independent buildings, public and private alternate energy power generation, rain harvesting, fiber optic daylighting and many other modes of delivery of sustainable features.
Our wealth of “Green” experience has been a great asset to the firm with the advent of the Green building movement. Our methodology in sustainable design closely parallels the approach prescribed by the USGBC and our transition to the specific project format and reporting has been a natural one.
We are catalysts in the creation of sustainable developments by educating the clients of the process and the available options as well as the presentation of cost/benefit analysis to justify the sustainable features. SEHA continues to expand its knowledge base through active participation and continuing education with industry organizations such as NCARB, USGBC, Energy Star, and the AIA. This provides our projects with real time information for the evaluation, budgetary, design, and implementation of sustainable practices. SEHA has LEED Architectural Professionals on staff with the experience to take any project from conceptual design through USGBC Certification.
