Our Mission Statement
Sustainable building is not enough. The buildings we design
and construct must be restorative—to the land, to future
generations and to the human spirit.
Eco Metrics was founded in 2005 to serve the rapidly growing
sustainable building movement. LEED for Existing Buildings
provides significant opportunities for environmental gains and
economic growth. This is the driving force behind the direction
Eco Metrics has taken with its clients.
We have grown into a national coalition of green building
professionals who have combined our abilities in the
development of an exceptional set of tools for Green Building
Operations and Maintenance (GB O+M).
We apply diverse skills in architecture, engineering,
construction, facility management, energy management, waste
management, and green cleaning to our experience in
commercial, health care, and school buildings.
Building Operations and Maintenance Consulting
No, we don’t finance your project, but we do show you how. We
help you develop a financing plan using a variety of tools to
build the economic case. You don’t need a capital plan to
implement an energy improvement.
Our 35 years of estimating experience in the construction
industry will support your efforts to quantify your sustainable
building operations improvement plans. We will evaluate,
estimate, and develop an ROI for every decision you could
implement toward a sustainable building and prioritize it to fit
your budget and agenda. ROI is only half the answer.
Financing a project is the creative side. We will help you
understand how to plan for implementation.
Our expertise in commissioning older buildings comes from the
experience of our commissioning agents. Gray hair is a
prerequisite for our commissioning agents. The experience is
valuable in archaic building systems to extract the greatest
levels of service from the equipment. And to know when to give
up and start over.
We have been implementing energy modeling practices on
some Existing Building projects to optimize energy performance
and return on investment. Knowledge of archaic building
structures is required. Energy modeling also provides access to
some nifty tax incentives.
Waste management is not only a potential cost reduction
measure, it is a potential revenue stream. Many projects are
successful in diverting over 90% of their waste from the landfill.
Our expert waste advisors can help you sort it out.

Chapters for CE credits, private parties, universities, and
