Green Building Practices
Energy Efficiency, Sustainable Design and Adaptive Reuse
The most sustainable way to build a city is to reuse existing structures, especially those in already dense urban areas. In the context of St. Louis, this means utilizing our city's historic structures and the resources inherent in an existing building. Killeen Studio specializes in such historic preservation and adaptive reuse projects. Additionally, we adhere to other concepts critical to create a sustainable future: energy efficiency, local products, density, building orientation, recycled materials and creating pedestrian friendly neighborhoods.

Residential Design Process
1. Project Planning
From brainstorming to ground breaking and construction, Killeen Home can provide services for every phase of the process. Your relationship with your architect begins with a free collaborative planning meeting, from which we will draft a proposal outlining the scope of the project, and providing a cost estimate.
Our policy is to work hand-in-hand with our clients, in order to fully understand your vision while developing an affordable, sustainable design solution. Our architects can provide sketches, 3D Modeling, computers illustrations and animations as we meet with out clients to finalize the design.
We ask one of our contracting partners to establish a budget price. If the design needs to be adjusted to stay within budget, we can quickly tweak it.Construction Documents
We will produce comprehensive construction documents. These are drawings and specifications needed for bidding, permitting and construction. Our planning documents are highly detailed, and you will benefit from our experience on hundreds of successfully completed projects.
4. Post-Design Services
- Bidding: We distribute documents to contractors and assist you with the bidding process
- Permitting: We help your contractor to acquire a building permit.
