Best AEC Firms 2011 Chapman Construction/Design

Based in Newton, Mass., Chapman Construction/Design is a 54-person firm specializing in sustainable construction management and consulting services for corporate, education, and medical/biotech clients.

Founded in 1984, Chapman provides its employees with quarterly industry-specific training seminars on building science, new methods and materials, and LEED accreditation preparation. Nearly half of all employees—26 of 54—have earned LEED AP status.

As further evidence of its commitment to sustainability, the firm completed a LEED-CI Platinum renovation of its 12,000-sf headquarters office. The project has been recognized as the first Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources case study for a near-net-zero commercial building.
