About Blair Seibert, AIA, LEED AP, CSBA
Blair Seibert is the principal and founder of
Verde Concepts Inc. As an environmental
 

consulting firm, Verde's mission is to help clients find sustainable solutions for building, development and operations. An architect with more than 25 years of experience, Seibert has a long-standing commitment to environmental ideals.

Since founding Verde Concepts in 2006, she has distinguished her WBE firm as a proven partner in complex projects. That personal service distinguishes Verde Concepts from other firms with similar services. This level of engagement is critical to successful certification, as well as in meeting environmental and sustainability goals.

In 2003 she was among the first building professionals to become accredited in the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program. Today, many consider LEED certification as the industry standard for environmental stewardship in design, construction and operations. Verde Concepts has been part of more than 20 LEED projects with over 3 million square feet in multiple rating systems. Verde is now offering support for Collaborative for High Performance Schools verified projects as well.

A LEED accredited professional in both BD+C and ID+C systems, she specializes in commercial interiors, commercial building design and construction. She is a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor and also has National Council of Architectural Registration Board level certification.

Seibert oversaw certification for the MGM Tower, the first LEED Existing Office Building in Los Angeles. She also managed the first Gold-Level Certified LEED commercial interiors projects in Santa Monica (Beachbody) and in Los Angeles (the Bond Companies). She is currently working on the Center for Performing Arts for the Bonita Unified School District on the San Dimas High School campus, a CHPS project.

Throughout her career she has placed her client's goals first to help them make lasting environmental improvements to their projects. She addresses complex environmental challenges for clients who have commercial, mixed-use, multi-family and educational construction and retrofitting needs.

In addition to her work as an architect, Seibert teaches contemporary environmental policy and sustainable building including achieving net-zero energy performance and creating living buildings. She contributes articles to architectural publications about sustainable design topics. 

She has a bachelor's of architecture degree from Mississippi State University and also studied at the Tulane School of Architecture. She teaches at Santa Monica College and UCLA. She is a certified hike leader for the Sierra Club.
