As a regional leader in sustainability consulting for affordable housing, we embrace your mission and understand your program requirements. We’re proud of our credentials and the expertise they represent, but for us, it’s about so much more. As we focus on the unique priorities of affordable housing projects, we never lose sight of energy and water efficiency. When utility costs are manageable, households are more financially stable, which allows families to establish roots and communities to flourish. As the rater/verifier for numerous green building programs, we understand that our most essential role is to verify compliance with program requirements. To that end, we provide critical feedback and guidance to design and construction teams in the format that works best for them, including detailed plan reviews, plan markups, and site visit reports. We apply our hard-earned expertise in green building practices to deliver certified projects with fewer headaches and surprises. Perhaps most importantly, we work diligently to create and maintain open and trusting relationships with all members of the design and construction teams. This approach prevents small problems from becoming big and expensive ones, especially when brought to us early for collaborative solutions.
