Environmental impact and sustainability practices are growing in importance for owners, occupiers and employees. From energy efficiency to carbon footprint reduction—from “green” design to construction management—Avison Young offers a full range of sustainability consulting and management services for owners and occupiers of real estate.
For owners, every property presents unique challenges for meeting sustainability goals. A building’s age, physical state, and previous capital improvements all affect a building’s environmental performance and the steps an owner should take to improve efficiency and reduce the asset's carbon footprint.
Whether occupiers are building out new or existing facilities, they need to align to their company’s sustainability goals, develop comprehensive strategies and understand and apply the latest technologies and industry best practices.
To meet the unique needs and goals of every assignment, our team of sustainability experts and LEED-AP professionals provides skilled oversight in energy management, construction, site selection, entitlements, lease negotiations, pre-construction, and design services, as well as vendor hiring and management.
Recently, we’ve completed several high-profile LEED certifications on behalf of our clients. This includes providing tenant representation services in New Jersey for the first LEED Double Platinum Certification for a new corporate headquarters facility.
For clients who want to implement sustainable solutions without pursuing LEED, we utilize LEED checklists to target high impact areas and work with consultants, contractors and vendors to achieve client goals.
