2019 will be the year for sustainable design. According to designer Ameen Ayoub of Ameen Ayoub Design Studio, more and more developers and clients are asking about sustainable design and looking for ways to incorporate sustainable features into projects. This includes everything from solar panels to electric charging stations, and the demand is expected to grow significantly in 2019.

“We are seeing clients ask for sustainable design more and more. Many clients have made the decision to install solar panels,” Ayoub, who has worked on sustainable projects across the country, including The Lofts at Cleveland Square, tells GlobeSt.com. “Currently, the codes are now requiring all new builds in residential houses to install solar panels. This was not the case just a year ago. We have installed solar panels and electric charging stations in many of our commercial office and multi-residential projects as well. We also have landscaped roofs on existing roofs which has helped with heat gain as well as capturing water for reuse.”
