EXPERIENCE WITH LEAD
ArquitectonicaINTERIORS has been striving to design sustainable interiors for over a decade. Most recently, our projects have focused on the LEED concepts that target the interior’s influence on the overall internal air quality and the longevity of the finishes. These features, such as using low or non toxic, rapidly renewable or sustainable finish materials, influence the aesthetics as well as emphasizing the need for sustainable features in the design.
ArquitectonicaINTERIORS’s LEED experience has grown tremendously. Most of our professional staff is LEED AP Certified.
