WHO WE ARE

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.
