Green Building

We simplify the design and certification of high-performance buildings.

Third-party certification is essential for team accountability and for public trust of high-performance projects; but it can often be a cumbersome process. Our 20+ years of experience managing certifications such as LEED has provided us with the skills to simplify the process and achieve the highest levels, while making it fun and inspiring for the project team.

Core Services

We have over twenty years of experience in certification management, specializing in LEED, Green Globes, Enterprise Green Communities, Living Building Challenge, and newer systems such as BREEAM-In Use, ARC, EcoDistricts, and the WELL Building Standard.

We are a team of superior project managers, committed to meeting your goals in an organized, reliable, and efficient manner.

High-performing buildings and developments hinge on a well-executed integrative process and we understand this process better than anyone (demonstrated through ground-breaking research, project experience, and publications).

Kick-off a new project with a visioning and programming charrette. Using IBE as a third-party facilitator is the best way to set meaningful goals, inspire stakeholders, establish an inclusive, collaborative team process, and build the foundation to achieve the highest certification level possible.

We offer basic and advanced WELL v2 services to help you understand how your building is impacting its occupants: What’s working well, what’s not, and why. Learn more.

"A superb value for any design team. IBE simply know a lot more about LEED certification than people who don’t do it exclusively. IBE’s involvement can easily increase a buildings LEED rating by an entire level over not having IBE involved."
