ArchEcology LLC

Our founder, Nancy Henderson is an Architect trained to address the whole building while coordinating the technical strategies of multiple disciplines. Michelle Rosenberger, her partner, manages the flow of project information and coordinates team communication. Together our passion for sustainability combined with knowledge of the design and construction industry creates a women-owned firm that offers practical, cost effective, sustainable strategies that align with traditional development goals.

For us, sustainability is a balancing act. Lots of people can dream big, but we operate where the rubber meets the road — where aspirational goals become reality. Paying attention to the nitty gritty details of implementation, while remaining mindful of big picture goals and constraints takes a nuanced understanding of the design and construction process and vast experience with sustainable projects.

10th anniversary

We’ve just turned 10 with 5+ million SF of certified new construction including 2,025 residential units to show for it. We’re proud of our firm, and the reputation we’ve built. We are the only LEED Proven Providers for both BD+C and ID+C programs on the West Coast. We’re celebrating and want to thank our clients for the opportunity to enhance the value of their buildings and the communities they serve.

We make sustainable
strategies easy to understand

There are lots of ways to green your building or construction project and no one size fits all solutions. We help you develop and implement the most cost effective approach to achieving your sustainable goals.

We focus on analyzing the full spectrum of sustainable possibilities to identify the measures that make the most sense for your project to let you focus on what you do best – developing, designing and building your project.
