HOME ENERGY RATING SYSTEM
The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a building’s energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a building’s energy performance
We offer this service that measures the level of efficiency of the building, like MPG in cars.
Analysis of the energy components of buildig design targeting the best scenarios for the efficiency of the building and necessary for adequate functioning of the building for energy efficiency and indoor air quality. Our state-of-the-art software application has one central integrated data model; saving time and facilitating the integrated approach with visualization tools and results with high level detail.
SUSTAINABLE SITE SOLUTIONS
Buildings belong to the environment where they are located, connectivity and creative site solutions to create a sense of place within the site and its community context.
As we develop our communities, our need for more efficient ways to provide connectivity and sustainable solutions to all of our development projects increases. We help our clients find the right combination of site development features to elevate the quality of the projects.
The professional practice that ensures buildings are delivered according to the Owner’s Project requirements (ORP) with energy components of the building installed and performing as designed.
Buildings that are properly commissioned typically have fewer change orders, tend to be more energy-efficient, and have lower operation and maintenance costs.
