W A T E R S H E D Green Consulting * Architecture * Education At Watershed, we consult with design and construction teams, businesses and homeowners, to create green building solutions. We are proud to work with clients across our region to reduce the environmental impacts of their buildings and create healthier, more energy efficient places to live, work and learn. While the growing green building movement is international, our solutions are local.
What’s in a name? Our office is located on the Eastern Shore of the Mobile Bay, at the very bottom of the 4th largest watershed in this country. The actions of millions of people and businesses upstream have significant impacts on the health of our bay, and therefore our local economy. While not everyone lives in such a extreme location, we chose the name Watershed as a reminder that we all live downstream.
Our mission is to create and improve buildings so that they to leave this region better than we found it. We want to go beyond “mitigation” or reducing the harm of development, to creating positive impacts on the natural world, positive economic gains, and positive social impacts.
Our method is three fold: to build expertise around affordable, sustainable building solutions for our hot humid climate, to create built environments that inspire a greater connection with the natural world, and to perform our work in the spirit of collaboration, sharing information with our communities and clients.
