Not-for-profits experience many of the same pressures relating to environmental concerns, energy costs, and global competitiveness as the for-profit sectors. Environmental engineering is especially relevant for non-profits as it relates to reducing costs and inefficiencies, rehabilitation, preservation, and the prevention of costly compliance errors.
Projects with a focus on history, preservation and ecology are well-suited to a sustainable design ethos. PWGC is proud to have worked on several projects that helped to modernize and upgrade historical properties where preservation of the original edifice was a concern. PWGC has performed innovative geothermal design services for facilities such as St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC, Brooklyn’s Weeksville Heritage Center, and the Staten Island Museum—projects which help to launch their respective facilities into the 21st century without altering the original architecture or aesthetics.
