Conservation Design Forum
At CDF, we see water as the most vital resource for the whole of nature, which by definition includes people. This philosophy drives all of our design projects- health facilities, residential neighborhoods, parks, interpretive centers, retail stores, or anything else. We strive to understand the true natural and cultural spirit of a place, and express it in the design.
Since 1994, CDF has been a leader in the ecological design movement. We have pioneered green technologies and monitored them over time, to ensure constant improvement. We accomplish multiple benefits with each design element. This innovation adds value as does our diverse professional mix of team members.
West Union Green Streets in the news!
CDF's West Union Green Streets was featured in a PBS special hosted by Larry King on May 6, 2013! The project involves six blocks of a porous paving system, rain gardens, geothermal heating and cooling, and other energy efficient measures. These interventions are intended as a catalyst for further investment in the historic downtown.
