Sustainable Design Strategies

ANF is committed to design that integrates sustainable & high-performance building strategies. We work closely with our clients to identify opportunities to incorporate sustainable/green building technologies that result in extraordinary designs that save our clients in energy costs indefinitely. 

Our goal is to harness the power of design & imagination to create an enjoyable and healthy experience for building users that minimizes maintenance and energy costs while leaving a minimal impression on the natural environment.

The 1-40 Solar Farm Information & Welcome Center project (above) exceeds the Tennessee Sustainable Design Guidelines for Land Management, Water Efficiency, Energy Efficiency, Material Use and Indoor Environmental Quality. Roof-mounted solar panels were omitted; electricity from the surrounding solar array fed through the local utility grid powers the building. The facility serves as a working example of sustainable and energy-driven design.
