The ApproachFrom the outset, the 93 Nevins team established a set of guiding principles:

  • Aim High: Strive to achieve a high level of performance. Be open to a broader concept of “performance.”
  • Unleash Creativity: Harness the power of dialogue and collaboration, to find innovative solutions throughout the design and material selection, and construction process.
  • Think Locally: All green design is local, and relates to the connections we have to the world around us. Consider light, air, views and overall experience, so that the result is one in harmony with its surroundings. Engage the expertise and resources from within our own community.
