Project Profiles

Proximity Hotel

Opened in 2007, this luxury AAA Four Diamond boutique hotel utilized more than 70 sustainable practices during construction. As CEO Dennis Quaintance says, "I would never have believed that we could use 39 percent less energy and 33 percent less water without one iota of compromise in comfort or luxury and with minimal additional construction costs. It just goes to show what a determined team can accomplish if they use common sense and get a little bit of help from the sun."
