Construction in Oregon
Expert Guidance, Modeling, and Testing
We’ve created proprietary processes and materials to help our clients establish and achieve sustainability standards from design through construction and completion. For instance, our field verification and performance testing of specific design, construction, and operational conditions ensures quality control by helping to support contract accountability, which ultimately leads to better customer satisfaction.

We know how to work effectively with professional design teams and facilitate an integrated design approach to create high-performance buildings using the most cost-effective strategies. Our multifamily team addresses every project as an opportunity to deliver solutions that will make the project better with as little complexity and cost as possible.
First, we identify the sustainable building practices that will bring the most value to the owner and users. We help identify strategies to implement the practices that best fit their specific project and site, by incorporating selected measures into the building’s development. Then, leveraging our experience and tailored processes, we define a plan for the team that illustrates responsibility for the identified strategies and the information necessary to support the certification program that the team has chosen. Our analysis uses cost-effectiveness as one of the key elements for developing recommendations.
