We are committed to finding economic development solutions that benefit people, places and our planet.

Partner Spotlight: LHB

Our most notable project in 2018 was the completion of a Net Zero study, which focused on the creation of a net zero industrial warehouse building that would produce as much (if not more) energy than it uses.
