Design Group Collaborative (DGC) specializes in sustainable architecture that combines aesthetic expression with high performance and energy efficient design. Each project integrates with site and community contexts.

Founding partners Carla Haskell, Principal; and Rosa Lane, Ph.D., Principal Emeritus, are LEED Accredited Professionals. To strengthen our commitment to sustainable design practices, DGC partners participate in the AIA 2030 Challenge educational series and International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) conferences. These conferences provide education and shared experiences of the participants in their quest for sustainable design strategies that have a real impact in our built environment.

We are also committed to support community non-profits. DGC participates in the 1+ pro bono program. 1+ challenges designers to dedicate 1% or more of working hours to pro bono service and connects nonprofits with pro bono design services.
