LEED Services

LEED is complex enough to have created a seat at the design table for sustainability consultants — us! Contact us regarding any LEED rating system, and we’ll walk you through the process, and our role advising and guiding the team as LEED project managers.

Do you like the idea of gaining the efficiencies created by LEED, like energy and water savings, but don’t want to pay for the plaque on the wall? As expert LEED and green building consultants, we’ll advise on high performance building design, no pesky GBCI fees involved.

Commissioning (Cx) is a LEED prerequisite, meaning it’s required to LEED certify your project at all. The Cx process is like quality control for your building systems (HVAC, lighting, domestic hot water, renewable energy, etc.) — we make sure everything was installed correctly.

Energy modeling is required on LEED for new construction projects, and also the most effective way to increase the energy performance of your building. There’s a reason the most points available on the LEED Scorecard are in the energy category.

GC’s have so much on their plates, they often prefer to outsource LEED data collection from their subs, and LEED credit documentation, to the experts — us! We work with LEED every day so it’s more efficient for us to take on this scope than the GC team.
