While life-cycle cost should be the driver for high-performance building design decisions, budget limitations are real and cannot be overlooked. First cost is a critical element of any project. We know that economics and financing drive design decisions.
Our bottom-line business orientation allows us to provide our clients with useful information on the cost of energy conservation measures, renewable energy systems and other sustainable design strategies. We provide information on available incentives, rebates, and grants that can help to improve the return on investment. We can also provide expert insight on alternative financing approaches, including performance contracting, shared savings, and power purchase agreements.
