Sustainable Quality Award, 2006
All of Koning Eizenberg's projects express a commitment to sustainability and include sustainable design components. They have designed numerous LEED projects including Virginia Avenue Park. Their office is a living laboratory for green building design and highlights a passive solar vented wall, extensive day lighting and natural ventilation to reduce energy use. Photovoltaic panels on the roof allow the staff to enjoy watching the meter go backwards. They also recently purchased a "dual flush" toilet that offers an option for .8 or 1.6 gallon flush. Employees purchase cleaning supplies and office materials locally and often on a bike.
