TRIA, a principal-led architecture firm with a focus on designing unique spaces for science, technology, and corporate clients, is proud to announce it has formally signed on to the AIA 2030 Commitment to design carbon-neutral buildings by the year 2030. In addition, the firm has established 2-year goals to reduce the baseline carbon emissions on all its projects by 90%.
While TRIA has been incorporating sustainability elements and LEED-certified design for its clients’ projects since its foundation in 2015, the official pledge to align its framework with the AIA Standard for Design Excellence will provide clients with a new baseline when it comes to delivering TRIA’s scope of services. TRIA is designing all its clients’ workplaces at a minimum of LEED Gold certifiable, not only for the office but also for the lab and manufacturing facilities. Because lab facilities present a unique set of challenges, requiring five to ten times more energy per square foot to run than a corporate office, TRIA’s lab programming and planning expertise will be high-performance and low impact. Strong relationships with the industry’s most sustainable vendors and engineering partners give clients a comprehensive approach to sustainability and wellness.
As an industry leader in lab programming and planning and through the design of over 12 million square feet of lab and office space, TRIA has amassed robust database of information and is working with the AIA to update their laboratory energy usage metrics. We are helping the worldwide scientific community establish accurate baselines by consistently contributing data to the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL).
TRIA is dedicated to the AIA 2030 Commitment, from our design studio to your workspace, we are devoted to making the world a better place by promoting sustainability, health, and equity in the built environment–for the planet we share, the people we serve, and the purpose that unites us.
TRIA is a full-service architecture firm that values client relationships above all. The firm’s principal-driven approach puts our leadership team at the table with client decision-makers, working together to envision success, solve problems and deliver exceptional results. Its lab design and corporate interiors teams strive to learn every client’s unique DNA, and by doing so, they create efficient and energizing spaces that reflect a company’s culture and foster innovation. The result enables business success and advances new discoveriesin the lab, around the office, and beyond.
