Sustainable Design

Our firm proudly supports the AIA 2030 Challenge - all new buildings, developments, and major renovations to be carbon-neutral by 2030.

Our LEED Certified staff has experience with Net Zero, LEED Platinum and LEED Master Site projects.

Our projects have received awards for sustainable design from the USGBC, Los Angeles Business Council, Modern Healthcare Magazine, and more.


At Taylor Design, where our mission is ‘design that empowers people,’ we recognize the impact of architectural solutions that reduce waste and contribute to a healthier environment for all.


Our strategy-based approach to design incorporates human-centered research, Lean methodology and environmental responsibility, so we’re always striving to improve solutions for the built environment that positively impact the health and safety of end users.


Taylor Design also supports a corporate culture of sustainability, through wellness programs, professional development and office initiatives, which empowers staff to make a positive impact on projects and beyond. For projects large and small, across all markets and levels of complexity, we seek opportunities with clients to integrate sustainable principles. By setting goals in a collaborative manner at the outset – with respect to energy, water, materials, site selection and more – and leveraging 3-D building models and experiential technologies, like VR – we’re better equipped to run efficient projects, developing, iterating and refining effective design concepts earlier in the process.

In my 17 years of working with Kaiser, this was the best accessibility punch walk I have had... give yourselves a pat on the back as well. It has been a pleasure working with all of you.

The Women’s Pavilion is the example of how a well-run project goes when there is collaboration between the owner, architect, contractor and inspectors. Pound for pound, it is the smoothest running project in Southern California.
