Third-party certifications are important for team accountability and public trust of high-performance projects. They can also help push our collective expectations and for the built environment forward. But certification processes can often be complex and cumbersome.. 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.
We simplify the design and certification of high-performance buildings and communities.
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 are creating and testing a certification program for Lifelong Homes that promotes the development of safe, healthy, and accessible homes for all. The program strives to support more housing options equipped to meet the changing needs that come with aging and/or disability, and that incorporate the latest research on environmental and social determinants of health.
