How Can We Help You?

GEM provides a roadmap for design and construction professionals to plan for an integrated design processes to achieve high energy performance goals. We first collaborate with a projects design team to help identify economically feasible green solutions. At this phase, it is important that all changes made by one team member are communicated to others to ensure any issues are addressed before construction begins.

As a project transitions to the construction-phase, a third-party analyst will streamline ongoing communication between the design and construction team. As the core team changes, ceding precedence to the construction team, we provide streamlined communication support between the teams to ensure value engineering does not diminish planned green features. Our process-oriented approach invites teamwork and transparency to smoothly execute energy performance goals within scheduling and budgetary constraints.

At GEM, we believe every project is unique. We offer a wide range of customizable green building certification consulting serves to fit your project needs, including LEED certification consulting services, Zero Net Energy and various other green building programs.
