Building Energy Performance Assessments

An increasing number of States are moving towards requiring energy efficiency disclosure for commercial properties, and performing a Pre-construction Sustainability Review is already standard practice across the industry. Additionally, the ASTM Building Energy Performance Assessment Standard (E2797-11) was published February 10th, 2011, in an effort to simplify and standardize the assessment and disclosure of energy efficiency in commercial buildings. These factors, plus the growing need world-wide to minimize negative impact on the environment, are causing many owners, purchasers, developers, and real estate professionals to realize the importance of energy assessments for pre-transaction disclosure.

Based on your specific needs and goals, Blackstone will work with you and your project team to assess prospective strategies; oversee design and construction; conduct on-site visits, evaluate various buildings systems, and recommend methods for improvement; assess and make recommendations to improve environmental impact; and determine the viability of qualifying for environmental certification. We will also help you compile and submit documents to appropriate agencies such as the U.S. Green Building Council for projects registered with LEED and LEED-EB certification.
