HMC Architects is one of the leading sustainability architecture and design firms in the U.S., according to Architect magazine, which this month published its annual Architect 50 list.

At No. 43, HMC’s sustainability rankings were derived from energy and water metrics, employee certifications, building certifications, participating in the AIA’s 2030 Commitment, and evaluation of an exemplary green project submitted by the firm.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as one of the nation’s leading firms in sustainability, especially given the extremely competitive nature of this list,” says HMC Architects’ Eric Carbonnier, PhD, AIA and VP of Sustainability. “We are proud of our work and appreciate Architect for celebrating our commitment to sustainability, resilience, and well-being.”

Eric notes three recent examples of HMC’s leadership in project sustainability including the newly opened County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency building, a Zero Net Energy (ZNE) facility;  Kaiser Permanente Medical Office Building in La Habra, California, which is the first LEED Platinum certified medical office building in Southern California; and Shunde Hospital of Southern Medical University, which serves as the first pilot hospital for China’s green guide to hospital design.
