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.

Collaboration during social distancing

April 23, 2020

Dear friends, clients, colleagues and collaborators,

Our team hopes that you are all staying safe and well during this time of crisis.

The situation is fast changing, and Gilleran Energy Management, Inc. is taking every precaution to protect the health and safety of our clients and our staff. We are committed to providing continued service to our clients while abiding by the recommendations or orders from the CDC, WHO and other local governing agencies. We have spent the last month taking proactive and precautionary steps to keep everyone safe while still moving our projects forward efficiently. Things are not business as usual, but we are happy to report that we are now set up to work remotely from the safety of our homes.

There have been some delays and/or inconveniences while we made this transition, we apologize for that. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to adjust to the new “normal”. Most importantly we appreciate your business and choosing to work with our committed group of energy and green building consultants to achieve your goals.

We will continue to monitor the fluid situation as changes continue to occur on a daily basis. Counties in the Bay Area have further restricted work, as of April 1, on construction sites unless they are considered an essential service i.e. affordable housing, medical or government related projects. Our team will continue to shelter in place and will correspond remotely whenever possible. We have created and adapted some industry policies that allow remote site visits via live video and audio as well as the use of photo-documentation. As things change, we will continue to update you.

Please feel free to contact Kevin with any questions or concerns.

Warm regards,

Kevin, Sam, Kim Beltran, Michael, Samantha, Ian, Kim Carpico and Christie
