Sustainability + LEED Consulting

Since 2001, The Center has provided Sustainable Design and LEED Consulting services to a select group of public and private sector projects that establish new performance benchmarks in under-represented sectors, such as healthcare and low-rise retail centers, as well as advance breakthrough strategies in large scale projects including a high-rise mixed use urban development project, a vacant shopping mall, a 700-acre mixed use urban redevelopment, and the Pentagon. Our team includes a LEED Fellow and LEED accredited professionals with demonstrated expertise with several LEED rating systems, including New Construction, Schools, Neighborhood Development, and Healthcare. We couple professional credentials and extensive experience with our ecoBalance and life cycle design protocols to raise the bar for sustainability and LEED certification. Our projects are a model for using an integrated approach to achieve high performance healthy buildings with attention to schedule and budget.

Green Urbanism at Mueller

The redevelopment of the 711-acre former Austin Mueller Municipal Airport began in earnest in the early 2000s, conceived as a master development with 10,000 residents and 10,000 jobs.  Sustainability was identified early on as one of Mueller’s six central tenets, along with fiscal responsibility, economic development, East Austin revitalization, compatibility with surrounding neighborhoods, and diversity.  CMPBS began our collaboration on the project in 2004 at the request of Mueller’s Master Developer Catellus Development Group.

Dell Children's Medical Center of Central Texas

When Dell Children’s Medical Center broke ground on the Robert Mueller Development site in 2004, the Seton Family of Hospitals had a vision of creating a “green” hospital which would set new standards. Over the last several years, world-renowned medical professionals, architects, environmentalists and elected officials have toured Dell Children’s to learn what it takes to build and operate a LEED certified hospital.

Dell Children's is the first hospital in the world to achieve LEED® Platinum Certification.

Escarpment + Parkside Village

In 2002, the Center met with the principals of Austin-based Stratus Properties to establish green building protocols for a planned retail development in environmentally sensitive southwest Austin.  What began as an unexpected and rare expression of interest from the development community at the time has evolved into successive collaborations to establish meaningful and measurable accomplishments at a scale for which few visible examples exists in this region.

Block 21

Stratus Properties’ Block 21, a $300 million, 1.1 million square foot mixed use development in Austin’s Central Business District created a distinct opportunity to explore green design and construction on a massive scale.  With Andersson-Wise leading the architectural team, the 37 story project will feature an entire city block of mixed-use development including the W Hotel & Residences (159 condominiums and 252 guestrooms), the 2,500-capacity Austin City Limits music venue and studio, as well as retail and meeting space, a spa, bars and restaurants, and thousands of square feet of offi
