At BuildingWise, our passion lies in figuring out how to make existing buildings perform as well or better than the fanciest and most efficient new ones.
We have the technical aptitude to generate these solutions, and we have a depth of experience that’s unmatched in the industry. This means we understand how to navigate the many nuances of rating system compliance, as well as how to handle the inevitable challenges a project will face.
Our experience is crucial because it allows us to guide you through the process as painlessly as possible, transforming your project from one that “looks right on paper” to one that’s done right in the real world: on time and on budget, something our clients find refreshing in an industry plagued with delays and cost overruns.
BuildingWise is an independent consulting firm and works on a fixed-fee basis, with no hidden agendas or relationships with outside contractors, products, or services.
LEED® and BREEAM® certifications
With more than 40 million square feet of project experience, we are the global leader in both the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and BREEAM (Building Research Environmental Assessment Method) certification programs for existing buildings.
Once we’ve achieved the initial certification you’re seeking, we can also work with you to maintain the higher performance standards until you are ready for re‐certification, a service 80% of our LEED and BREEAM clients choose to take advantage of.
We have expertise in:
- BREEAM International Refurbishment
- BREEAM USA In-Use
- BREEAM Bespoke International
For clients who want to improve their building’s efficiency in advance of—or outside of—LEED or BREEAM certification, we offer consulting services tailored to your particular project. We’ll analyze your building and then create a detailed plan of actionable retrofitting strategies targeted to improving its performance and giving you the greatest return on investment.
