DiNisco Design’s core design philosophy has always focused
on environmental quality. Strategies such as effective daylighting
work with energy efficient lighting design to provide productive
environments for learning, work and play while reducing operating
costs. Thoughtful construction sequencing, design detailing, and
materials selection can have long-term benefits to indoor air quality.
Today, these qualities are being embraced by the architectural and
client community as Green or Sustainable Design.
In 1988, we designed a greenhouse incorporating active and passive
solar heating strategies for a school on Martha’s Vineyard.
The greenhouse is the school’s main entry as well as a science
classroom all while bringing significant heating cost savings. Today,
we are involved with three grants awarded by the Massachusetts
Technology Collaborative Green Schools Initiative to incorporate
such sustainable design strategies as renewable energy in the form
of solar photovoltaics, daylighting, high efficiency lighting, and
rainwater harvesting to the towns of Danvers, North Andover, and
DiNisco Design is committed to sustainable design. We are proud
members of the Green Roundtable. Two members of our
design team are LEED Accredited Professionals.
