Good design is sustainable

As active members of both the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and the International Dark-Sky Association, environmental stewardship has long been at the forefront of the FMS design approach. To maintain this strong leadership, every FMS design team is filled with LEED APs.

Seamless integration of solar and electric light

Light is light. FMS has long been adept at utilizing both solar and electric light to enrich the effectiveness and visual experience of a space. Whether it be managing the sun for visibility and contrast control, understanding daylight availability for horticulture, mediating illumination levels for conservation, or understanding how all the lighting components will work: FMS can help.

Technology VT

Lighting is technology

Technology has pushed our industry and practice into a state of constant change and disruption while light sources are increasingly integrated with other architectural systems and devices. Lighting Technology and Information Technology are becoming one. The full and smooth integration of Information Technology within our work is a central component of our design process and aligns our IT strategy to our business. At FMS, Information Technology enables client focused results, and “MAGIC”.
