Working in partnership with our clients, and drawing on a strong foundation of skills, knowledge, and field experience, O’Brien & Company offers finely targeted services to ensure long-term performance and value on building projects.
We approach all our projects with an eye towards how integration and collaboration can better achieve high performance on the project’s environmental and social goals, while staying on budget and on schedule. Our firm is passionate about the integrative process (IP) and has participated in a peer review process to create an ANSI standard for the application of that process. We use the standard on all of our projects.
In addition to process facilitation, O’Brien & Company staff join the project team as sustainability experts providing progressive, economically sound technical expertise. Through an expanding set of analytical services, we help the team set the sustainability course for the project and verify it along the way, correcting course as needed.
We then provide full-service rating system project management and quality assurance through receipt of the project’s certification. We have managed over one hundred LEED projects since the first version of LEED was released and work with a diversity of rating programs including Built Green, Energy Star, Living Building Challenge, and the Sustainable Sites Initiative. As a project moves from idea to reality, we provide tools for ongoing sustainable operations.
