SWBR is a different kind of design firm. Their culture is defined by their integrity, technical excellence and providing quality work on time and on budget to our clients’ satisfaction. For over 49 years, they have pioneered a multidisciplinary approach, with structural engineers, interior designers and landscape architects all on the SWBR team, allowing for innovative and collaborative design projects.
The core belief at SWBR is that architecture and place-making matter. They have been at the forefront of designing buildings sustainably, but they also understand how great buildings and spaces can inspire, influence and enhance the lives of their users and the community. In other words, the design of your building can have a major influence on your "conscious" culture.
Recently, SWBR took the B Impact Assessment as part of the MeasureUp Finger Lakes Initiative. Not only did it give them a way to measure their sustainability practices, but also caused them to reflect on themselves and think about how they could continue to evolve their company culture.
Dave Beinetti has been with SWBR since 1979, starting as an intern, then architect, then moving into project management, and is now Principal and Chairman of the Board. Listen to the interview with Dave on how SWBR is designing for (Human) sustainability!
