Build a Sustainable Future


Learn About us View Our Work

Real Estate Developers

We work with our clients to help set and achieve their financial and operational performance metrics for existing buildings, new construction and renovations. We help identify and provide documentation for private and government funding sources through review and recommendations on strategic design features, establishing energy performance and savings, as well as through post-project energy performance verification.

Building Owners

When the goal is to improve a building's performance, Emerald helps our building owner clients set and achieve their financial and operational performance goals. Whether new construction, renovation or an existing building, we will guide you through the process to evaluate, plan and implement to achieve the goals that matter to your bottom line.

Architects + Engineers

We help our clients design high performance buildings and achieve sustainable certifications. Using our unique framework for project development from planning through operations, we meet you where you are and support you in reaching your client's goals. With global experience, we know how to efficiently achieve green certifications such as LEED, WELL, Green Globes and others by leveraging energy modeling, integrated design process and building commissioning so you can deliver higher-performing designs and buildings with less upfront cost to the owner.


We support contractors as a technical resource for testing and independent consulting. We help to guide contractors in meeting project requirements for green building certifications such as LEED, Energy Star, WELL, FitWel, National Green Building Standard and others. Our experience on over 250 projects worldwide allows us to step in and complete specific tasks required of you and to make sustainable building requirements easy to document and cost effective.

Building a Sustainable Future

Emerald Built Environments is an international consulting company with expertise in business, sustainability, engineering and building science. We transform buildings, roadways, neighborhoods and developed land to achieve a healthy economy and environment. We consult with building owners and developers, and their design, construction and operations teams using integrated decision-making to align recognized industry standards and certifications with the owner’s performance metrics and financial goals.

We focus on the owner’s financial and performance goals from the start. By aligning all stakeholders around these goals in conjunction with sustainability requirements, projects naturally achieve a higher level of performance and success - they win. Drawing on our extensive experience with projects worldwide, we guide teams to solutions at the forefront of sustainability and energy efficiency.

Through our proven four-step process, we will identify challenges and clarify opportunities to solve them in a way that does not jeopardize the project’s goals, cost and schedule requirements.
