Audits and Benchmarking-Benchmarking is the key to successful tracking of energy and water usage for all properties and environmentally friendly buildings. Once benchmarks are established sustainable programs can be implemented and followed in order to reach goals as well as decreasing NOI.
Energy Star’s Portfolio Manager is a tool that will benchmark and track usage for water, electricity, and greenhouse gasses.
Building Sustainability Experts can provide a LEED Gap Assessment on a set of plans or an existing building. The assessment report will tell you which prerequisites and points the project meets and what is required to meet the remaining points and prerequisites to meet the desired certification level.
Our experience with LEED enables us to fast track the documentation. Our team has an understanding of what LEED requires for Programs and Policies, Materials & Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, IPM, and all the detail that is required in obtaining a certification. This applies to all LEED programs and LEED certified buildings.
