The growth of Gelfand Partners Architects serves as an example of how business success can be compatible with strongly-held ideals and values. The full-service architecture firm designs schools, community centers, affordable housing, and other buildings that provide tangible benefits to their communities; their latest customer segment is mission-driven private businesses. Gelfand Partners, a certified B Corporation, has a strong commitment to sustainability, and its President, Lisa Gelfand, says that the firm’s inner city location allows most of her employees to walk, bike, or take public transit to work. As her firm grows, Gelfand hopes to continue to partner with and provide services to more fellow B Corporations.
