A Mindful Use of Materials
As architectural metal consultants, designers, engineers, and fabricators serving architects and contractors worldwide, Zahner is committed to climate change mitigation and healthy construction methods through sustainable and resilient design standards and manufacturing practices.
We study and adhere closely to the AIA Framework of Design Excellence that promotes better outcomes through responsible design and natural resource stewardship. While we don’t control every aspect of a building project, we do meet the highest standards of environmental protection specifically in the areas of metal sourcing, finishes, patinas, manufacturing, fabrication, packing, shipping, installation, and all other aspects within our area of expertise and influence. Below are the principles we focus on.
