Milliken Chicago Showroom Achieves Gold LEED Certification
Sustainable Design Strategies
Catalyst Partners is a multi-dimensional consortium of knowledge leaders committed to high performance and restorative design protocols for buildings, interiors and products. The consortium is comprised of professionals with licensures in science, engineering, architecture, and interiors. Our clients seek assistance in building and product performance optimization and certification. We act as the “catalyst” that helps our clients establish benchmarks and achieve their goals.
Our experienced, environmentally focused network of design, engineering, scientific, business and marketing professionals serves a client roster that includes architects, building contractors, developers, interior designers, owners, and product manufacturers in companies large and small. Our work is local, regional, national and international in scope.
We specialize in High Performance, Restorative Design, Construction, Operations and Education services and are certification experts including the LEED® certification process. Our team of credentialed professionals includes Civil, Electrical and Mechanical Engineers and Architectural and Interior Designers who keep current on the constantly evolving standards through volunteer participation on U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) committees and our work with the USGBC and the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI).
We are strong advocates of a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA)-based approach leveraging solar income and restorative principles that results in quantifiable development and performance standards. As the term suggests, an LCA carefully examines the environmental impact of a product or buildings entire lifespan, from creation through repurposing. Using this approach, we have documented results that demonstrate both short-term savings and long term return on investment for our clients.
What We Do
We address each client’s unique needs by matching them with a carefully selected team of environmental experts. Our team works closely with the client, from project planning through completion, to assure the prescribed environmental objectives are incorporated into, and properly documented for, the project.
Members of the Catalyst Partners consortium have been affiliated with the World Green Building Council since its inception and involved in international LEED projects since 2005 and U.S. LEED projects since 2000. We have proven strategies and solutions for facilitating certification in: Latin America, China, India and Europe. We share our knowledge and experience through a global network of partnerships with local experts to enable wide spread adoption of environmentally responsible, high performance certification practices.
