From the earliest green building demonstration projects in the region to the latest cutting edge projects, O’Brien & Company has helped clients identify progressive and economically sound sustainable design and construction practices.
We use an integrative design approach to facilitate a successful project from early visioning through construction completion. We advise clients on the use of green building rating systems to achieve their goals, including selection of the appropriate system. We then customize a package of support from full-service rating system project management to targeted quality assurance reviews and technical support. As a project moves from idea to reality, we provide tools for ongoing sustainable operations and green building education to build capacity for future projects.
