Green Building Practices
Melaver McIntosh was engaged by a mid-size U.S. city to: Research green building policies implemented throughout the U.S.; Analyze strengths and weaknesses of the various programs; Develop a green building policy (along with a set of incentives) that would apply to both the public and private sector. The objective: Leverage prior, pioneering green building projects developed by our sister company, Melaver, Inc. and position the city as a national leader of sustainable building practices.
Recommendations for a green building policy and accompanying incentive program for adoption by this municipal client.
“Melaver McIntosh has taken the lead on several paradigm-changing projects for us, among them developing recommendations for a city-wide green building program and creating an energy retrofit program model that was innovatively linked to multi-modal mobility and economic development. They’re one of those rare companies that understand all aspects of what it takes to shape a healthy community.”
