We are proud to announce that HMC Architects is once again ranked among the top Architecture and Design firms on Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) Top 100 Green Design Firms list. Firms were ranked according to 2019 revenue generated from projects registered with, or certified by, a third-party organization that sets standards for measuring a building’s environmental impact, energy efficiency, or carbon footprint. HMC was ranked number 26.
With global warming and the continuing rise of greenhouse gases, HMC is taking on a responsibility to work internally as well as with its clients and partners to provide substantial relief to the crisis through the firm’s design work. In April 2020, HMC released a seven-resolution Climate Action Plan that doubles down on the firm’s commitment to zero carbon. The plan—which has been in the making the last two years—is a strategic framework that highlights ways to measure, plan, and reduce the firm’s carbon footprint with the overarching goal of zero carbon architecture. It includes seven resolutions within a framework of three distinct initiatives: The first looks at HMC’s personal operations within the firm and reducing its impact on the environment. The second is reducing its emissions through architecture. The third is about HMC’s overall impact in alignment with greater initiatives at the state, national, and global level. With the new climate action plan, HMC is laser-focused on its clients and eager to provide thought leadership and amazing environments for student learning, healthcare, and civic spaces with the climate in mind.
