In early 2020, the office was averaging over 650 copies per month but by February of 2021, that number was down to under 100. Mr. Clark credits the reduction to a greater reliance on technology for sharing files with clients.

By encouraging clients to have pdf copies rather than printed copies the office reduced paper waste and saved on printing costs.

The office also recently added new LED lights, an upgrade that netted an immediate energy bill savings of almost $50,00 per month. The LEDs use an advanced technology that monitors the amount of sunlight being received in the room so they can dim accordingly which results in less energy used.

In addition to the work Mr. Clark and his staff are doing within the office, they also work with clients during a projects’ design phase by making recommendations that promote sustainability. Jon said, “It’s nice to be able to add in new design features that reduce utility use and promote a better environment for the community”.
