Beautiful & Sustainable Design

Macdonald Architecture & Technology architectural and site design, project cost control, construction management.

WE FO­CUS ON OUR CLI­ENTS

their needs, their ideas, and their design con­cepts.  We en­able and as­sist in bring­ing these ideas to fruition by us­ing in­ter­act­ive cost ac­count­ing, 3D di­git­al BIM, build­ing in­form­a­tion mod­els, code com­pli­ant per­mit sub­mis­sion, and work­ing draw­ings for strong, dur­able, green, sus­tain­able, and beau­ti­ful build­ings.

WE BE­LIEVE IN THE IM­PORT­ANCE OF AR­CHI­TEC­TUR­AL DESIGN

to our Cli­ents, for their prosper­ity, safety, se­cur­ity, health, and com­fort.  We also be­lieve in the im­port­ance of en­ergy con­scious design to LOWER CON­STRUC­TION AND OP­ER­A­TION COST as well as the Car­bon foot­prints of our cli­ents’ build­ings.

SUS­TAIN­AB­IL­ITY & EN­ERGY IN­DE­PEND­EN­CE

We em­ploy Passiv-Haus & Net-Zero design meth­ods in­clud­ing in­teg­rated pass­ive & act­ive sol­ar and geo­therm­al en­ergy cre­ation for off-grid and grid-tie build­ings.

Your Net-Zero build­ing can pro­duce all the en­ergy it needs us­ing both act­ive & pass­ive sol­ar and geo­therm­al design
Passiv-Haus thermal break con­struc­tion saves en­ergy
Power over Eth­er­net dis­tri­bu­tion con­serves elec­tric­al power.
