Verdical Group provided Net Zero Consulting and a Renewable Energy Assessment for The Recording Academy’s Santa Monica Facility. This included the development of a building energy model, working with a third-party solar contractor to obtain a PV analysis, and identifying other applicable Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs) that could be undertaken by the project owner.
