The S/L/A/M Collaborative (SLAM) has ranked 26th for the sustainability category in Architect Magazine’s 2016 Architect 50. The Architect 50 recognizes top architecture firms nationwide in three categories—sustainability; business and profitability; and design on an assigned score of 100.
SLAM's commitment to sustainability goes beyond financial and environmental savings to provide a commitment to its clients. SLAM has a long-standing commitment to the practice of environmentally sensitive design. With the advent of formal commitments on the part of many of its clients, SLAM has moved aggressively to formalize its own commitments through membership in the USGBC and through training for key staff in LEED™ Guidelines for Green Building Practices. Featuring a staff of over 30 LEED™ Accredited Professionals, SLAM has completed over $1 billion in LEED™/sustainable projects, with 22 projects earning LEED™ certification and 15 projects currently in the certification process.
Notable LEED™ certified projects include the LEED™ Gold-certified Duke University Trent Semans Center for Health Education; the LEED™ Gold-certified ESPN “KidsCenter” Childcare Facility; Emory University’s LEED™ Silver-certified Medical Education Building, Candler Library and Rollins School of Public Health; and the LEED™ Silver-certified UTC/Pratt & Whitney Building G. The new Mid-Campus Residence Hall at Central Connecticut State University has also recently received LEED™ Silver certification.
The firm has also ranked #55 on Engineering News-Record’s (ENR) 2016 Top 100 Green Design Firms with a reported green design revenue of $13.32 million.
