Expert Delivery, Worldwide



1. Listen and Strategize

The first step to success is listening. We ask questions so we can understand your goals and constraints.  From there, we help you build a strategy for success.
Strategies for building projects clearly articulate how to meet the owner’s project requirements while addressing considerations such as financing requirements, budgets, operations, stakeholder goals and use-cases.
With a focus on sustainable performance, we help you take the long-term view for success.

2. Evaluate and Plan

Clearly defined goals lead to clearly defined scope and objectives for the design team. Throughout the design process, continued interaction and review will help to assure the project goals are on track. 
Integrative Design helps to ensure the team is moving forward with aligned objectives.
Charrettes are a tool we often use to help our teams discover winning strategies and solutions to meet the owner's goals.  This collaborative process allows all stakeholders to be involved, which ensures success during implementation. 

3. Implement

A successful project will deliver on the opportunities presented during the planning phase. As the project team progresses, it is imperative there is continual guidance, assuring the overall goals and metrics are captured in the details of project delivery, budget and execution.
We guide our teams with hands on coaching and expert consultation derived from our proven success and experience with a world class and diverse portfolio.

4. Test and Measure

Our team of accredited commissioning professionals excels in assuring that all systems and components of a building are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client.
Leveraging analytics, our team will take performance metrics such as energy and water use and waste and develop actionable strategies that improve results.
We help the Team through implementation of the Continuous Improvement process, validating the design, installation, and operation of any building.



New Construction + Major Renovation Projects

From small commercial projects to 2 million square foot mixed use potato chip manufacturers to steel mills, K-12 schools and advanced learning spaces, Emerald excels at helping owners of major construction and renovation projects reach goals. Leveraging frameworks and discipline from sustainable certifications and the analysis created from energy modeling, we help our clients achieve higher performance for both construction costs and operational costs. 
Learn more in our On Demand Webinar about how to save first and operational costs.


Existing Buildings + Portfolios

The total lifecycle cost of a building is often 80% or more from operations.
We use tools such as energy audits, energy modeling, performance tracking, and consumption analysis to deliver smart recommendations.  With an understanding of your goals, we help you shape the right projects and improvement plans to maximize value from your existing buildings.



Global Perspective

Working on projects across the U.S. and internationally allows us to stay at the forefront of sustainable and high performance designs and emerging technologies.  We use this global experience to help our customers expand understanding and create more opportunity.


Business Focused

Whether or not your organization is in the business of buildings, you are in the business of financial and performance metrics.  We understand where buildings fall in the spectrum of profit center to cost center for our clients and are able to present options that meet your organization's goals.
