At Verde Concepts we offer green solutions that serve your project's specifications and needs. Whether a single office or a multi-story commercial tower, we provide sustainable solutions for site selection, planning, design, materials selection, construction support and documentation.
We offer support before, during and after every project, as needed. With in-house expertise and a network of known and trusted consultants, Verde's team flexibility helps you reach your goal.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) – We facilitate all aspects of your LEED project in several categories.
Energy Efficiency Audit – We perform Level 1, 2 and 3 energy audits according to the standards of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). Level 1 audits generate a list of potential equipment and operational modifications that could improve energy performance. If opportunities are confirmed at Level 1 then a Level 2 audit is recommended. Level 2 documentation includes a detailed inventory of energy related building systems along with a wide-ranging list of Energy Efficiency Measures, coupled with their financial benefit. Level 3 audits are investment grade audits. They involve multiple weeks of analysis and may involve computer simulation modeling to confirm energy savings offered by recommended modifications.
||LEED BD+C (Building Design and Construction)
LEED EB: O&M (Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance)
LEED CS (Core & Shell)
LEED ID+C (Interior Design and Construction)
Collaborative for High Performance Schools – We coordinate design teams and develop documentation for project s seeking CHPS verification. As with all projects, we offer support before, during and after the project. Documentation and paperwork are key to CHPS projects and you can count on us for follow-through.
Waste Audit – A waste audit offers clients another way to save money and reduce landfilled materials. Verde Concepts provides waste stream audits and analysis for clients independently or as part of the LEED Existing Building certification process.
Greening Your Office – Looking to become more environmentally responsive while saving money on energy and operating costs? We'll assess your company or corporate practices, including energy and water use, purchasing and cleaning practices, and transportation and travel policies. From there we'll develop a recommended Greening Office Program tailored to your organization and its facilities. We offer personal training and web based educational platforms that may be used to communicate the changes taking place to your employees or building tenants.
Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) – We analyze projects and compare materials and assemblies to make sure your project has the most environmentally suitable construction and finish products.
Green Building Product Consulting and Research – As a team member or outside resource, we provide up-to-date information, research and analysis of the products and systems you are considering. We can also recommend the most appropriate products for your specific needs.
In-house Sustainable Design Seminars – We provide sustainable design training in a convenient setting that's also economical. Our seminars include basic overviews to in-depth training.
Green Rating System Education – During this half-day seminar, we highlight the current version of the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED BD+C, EB:O&M, CS or ID+C and CHPS rating systems, depending on your preference. Presentations may also include discussion about preparation for and successful strategies for passing the LEED GA or specialty exams.
Green Tenant Guideline Development – We help you develop green building assessment questions for potential landlords and green tenant guidelines for future tenant build-outs. We provide guidance on including green practice requirements in future leases.
