Architectural firm Meeks + Partners has announced the launching of the
M+P Green Studio. Led by a three-man team of LEED-accredited professionals, the studio will incorporate
sustainable strategies into the planning and design of multifamily developments. In addition
to LEED guidelines, the M+P Green studio team members will incorporate the green initiatives set
forth in the newly-adopted National Green Building Standards for the USA.
“Whether it is repositioning an existing multifamily development in the market to incorporate energy efficient
designs and optimizing its performance or designing a new property, we are committed to
design ingenuity – as it relates to cost controls and the positive impact left on the environment and
the community,” stated Donald J. Meeks, Chairman of Meeks + Partners.
“We have teamed up with experienced consultants who share our philosophy in becoming more
environmentally responsible. Our clients have led the way in numerous ways as they respond to the
lifestyle changes of residents who are significantly more sensitive to sustainable principles.”
One of the foundations of the M+P Green Studio is to lay the groundwork for new directions in
making sound land-use decisions. With the implementation of the program, the team reviews the
site plan, building mechanical systems and material selections. “Our goal is to reduce the energy
consumption and to make the buildings more efficient, which will reduce our clients’ operating costs
and responds directly to market demand,” Meeks stated.
“As this year marks our 35th anniversary, we take pride in producing exceptional design and
planning solutions that are strategic, cost effective and on time. Our goal is to improve a building’s
performance and efficiency and to design a unique environment for the residents,” Meeks said. “By
being responsive to our clients’ needs and by defining a clear architectural language, our firm strives
to create an innovative and uplifting destination that inspires its residents and the local citizens.”
