Coordinating all those locations, spaces, and equipment is a major undertaking, and, as a result, essential compliance processes can sometimes sit on the back burner for too long. After the team at Broadway Stages received an energy compliance violation notice for one of their buildings, they wanted to ensure it didn’t happen again. They began looking at different energy compliance and auditing firms, and they ultimately decided to work with Vert Energy Group. Anna Smagacz, associate at Broadway Stages, reported that since Broadway Stages has so many large buildings, they knew it would be easier to have Vert Energy Group manage all of their facilities. Smagacz says: “We got a violation on one of our buildings, and that’s how we started working with Vert Energy Group. Because we have so many buildings, it’s easier to manage when you have one company doing everything for you … and so many are more than 50,000 square feet, it was easier to have the professionals at Vert Energy Group do it for us.”
Now Broadway Stages is able to focus on their active business goals without having to worry about their compliance needs. Their process is easy: They provide an updated list of the properties they manage to the Vert Energy Group team, and the Vert Energy Group compliance professionals review the data and submit the required benchmarks to the city. What’s next? Based on their prior benchmarking experience with Vert Energy Group, Broadway Stages opted to partner with Vert Energy Group again on a vital commissioning project for 2020-21.
“Go for it,” Anna Smagacz says. “Give Vert Energy Group a try and see how you like working with them. I [only have positive things] to say [about our experience].”
