Buildings account for nearly 40% of the total global energy-related greenhouse gas emissions. Given this substantial impact, improving energy efficiency, adopting renewable energy sources, and positioning buildings for future success are crucial mechanisms for reducing carbon footprints and mitigating the impacts of climate change. At SBP, we work with building owners, design practitioners, and stakeholders to effectively implement these strategies through advanced technical analysis and integrated design processes. With the use of whole-building energy modeling, energy auditing and advanced data analytics we are able to evaluate architectural concepts, HVAC, lighting, controls and renewable energy considerations and help inform these key design decisions. A successful project is one in which the design team is able to understand the energy impacts of design and operational decisions in the larger context of the project’s goals, resulting in better-informed and more effective decisions.
SBP offers dynamic and flexible energy performance services to support all types of projects and clients:
SBP works to support projects from initial programming all the way through occupancy using an effective workflow that involves consistent touch-points throughout the process:
