About SEQUIL Systems

SEQUIL Systems, Inc. is an award-winning professional services firm which provides highly technical building commissioning, LEED program management, energy modeling and sustainability consulting services to the architecture, engineering and construction industry. SEQUIL services help project teams reduce the environmental impact of buildings and create exceptional indoor environments. Founded in 2002, SEQUIL is now celebrating its 10th year as a provider of comprehensive energy strategies for the built environment.

We became a B Corporation to transform and inspire ourselves, our clients, our colleagues and our industry.

SEQUIL principals have been practicing architecture and engineering since the 1970s, when energy conservation was a core element of design. SEQUIL's commissioning authorities and LEED program managers are experienced and credentialed architects and engineers themselves, having practiced in large firms in major markets on award-winning, landmark and historic projects.

SEQUIL participates at an exceptionally high level as peers to the A/E/C team, bringing fresh ideas and a deep, green perspective to design and implementation. Insightful questions are asked to challenge project teams in re-focusing their efforts to energy, buildability and strategic investment in high-performance buildings.

SEQUIL is a 100% employee-owned company, located in a downtown/walkable seaside community close to its employees’ residences and convenient to major public transportation and commuter routes. SEQUIL provides a comfortable, collaborative studio environment which itself is a LEED Gold certified facility. SEQUIL provides flexible work schedules, a “no policy” vacation plan, generous benefits and retirement programs which treat its personnel with the respect they deserve.

The Change We Seek®

SEQUIL informs, inspires and encourages project teams to pursue optimal performance paths in building design and construction.

The firm asks “why?” and “why not?” on virtually every project decision, initiating vital communication amongst stakeholders and project team members.

SEQUIL is hopeful that this higher level of scrutiny will help others carry forth a more inspired approach to energy, environmental and social elements in their buildings, business and lifestyle.
