BHA Design Incorporated is a strong supporter of LEED. We encourage the implementation of LEED principles in our designs. We have chosen to implement these principles in our new office building here in Fort Collins. The Burr Oak Design Center, home of BHA Design, was designed and built to LEED Silver standards and has received LEED Silver certification. Visit our Burr Oak Design Center page.
We also have several LEED Accredited Professionals in house. We can work with you to maximize your LEED point potential as well as help develop a sustainable site and landscape plan for your project. Including BHA Design in your project early on is key to optimizing your project for sustainability.

"BHA has been providing landscape architecture and planning services to Poudre Valley Health System (PVHS) for over 14 years ... They have worked on all three of our main campuses including Medical Center of the Rockies, The Lemay Campus, and the Harmony Campus. In addition to their design services they have been instrumental in obtaining planning approvals from local governments and in working with the public to assist in presenting new projects. Their creative efforts have resulted in beautiful and functional landscapes which are highly popular with both the staff and the public.Rulon Stacey PhD, FACHE,President and CEO, Poudre Valley Health System
Our experience with BHA has been a rewarding partnership in which they have exhibited professionalism, excellent landscape and site design, and a high degree of sensitivity to meeting our needs for schedule, quality, and budget."
"I strongly recommend hiring BHA Design, specifically Roger Sherman and his staff, for their ability to create an exciting project that met the City’s needs while incorporating creative elements that were within budget, and achieved the community and Council desires. One of the greatest challenges of most design teams is managing expectation. Roger’s team was creative, used reasonable judgment and clearly communicated the design elements that will make this legacy project one of the most valued parks in our community."Janet Meisel-Burns, ASLACity of Loveland, Senior Park Planner
"I am pleased to provide this letter of recommendation for BHA Design Incorporated. In my position of Vice President for Planning and Project Development, I have had the opportunity to work extensively with BHA Design on a number of projects. These projects include the landscaping around a large new conference center, new exterior features for an existing lodge, a new outdoor dining facility, a pedestrian promenade, new entrance feature, a new camp fire ring and numerous capital campaign illustrations.
In each of these projects I have found the staff at BHA Design to be professional, creative and extremely attentive to our needs. Without reservation, I would recommend this firm to anyone in need of the services they offer."

"We had the opportunity to work with them on our Stephen Day neighborhood park project. The work done by BHA was extremely creative and professional.
The park design process began with BHA's very innovative public process. We conducted a series of meetings including a fantastic design charette with neighbors including children. From fun and engaging ice breaking activities to the final master plan, this segment of their design work excelled. Our continued work through Design Development and Construction Documents proved their commitment to excellence and attention to details. Their work was very professional with the park designed for durability and ease of construction. The end result was a project that I consider to be a creative gem within our already excellent park system. The BHA staff was a pleasure to work with."Paula FitzgeraldParks and Open Space Project Manager, City of Longmont
