Our Commitment

At BHDP, our promise to Design for People is the result of an elevated commitment to designing spaces and experiences that promote the health of people and the communities we impact.

With LEED- and WELL-Accredited Professionals on staff, we infuse our philosophy to deliver sustainable experiences and best practices into every project. We also help our clients gain a deeper understanding of how their people and environmental goals can inform design decisions that impact health, wellbeing, productivity, project lifecycle, and ultimately our global ecosystem. We recognize the importance that design has on indoor air quality, reduced energy usage and water consumption, occupant comfort, access to nature, and opportunities to live an active lifestyle.
