Good characters make for good buildings
Beginning with Living Zenith at Liberty Park, we are exclusively committed to green building. We passionately learn, adapt and apply the best strategies to disruptively innovate responsible, eco-friendly building. We do this through energy efficient design, science-based research, and Passive House+ construction—including retro-fitting, new construction and infill development.
