Our Philosophy

Sustainable Materials
At Mindful Designs, we have a clear objective to minimize the impact on the Environment throughout the Construction Phase
This includes a minimized site-impact strategy AND a formal or informal life-cycle analysis of the materials used throughout the building.
Environmental Footprints
Another focus at Mindful Designs is minimizing the environmental impact of the building after its completion by consciously building
A product that will perform exceptionally well for a long time-period. The building design and site development must harmonize with the solar,water and ecological life-cycles in its immediate environment.
Building Safe Homes
The completed building must ensure safe and healthy interior environment for all of its occupants throughout the life of the building
Air quality is the main focus of this component and is factored into Material Selection, Structure Design, and Performance System
