Sustainability

sustaniSustainability starts with making financially sustainable decisions. As a part of our commitment to create real value in a changing world, we are determined to hold ourselves accountable for the social, environmental, and economic impacts of our operations and decisions. We develop policies, business practices and services which drive change in our industry.  It is part of the OakBridge vision to make sustainable development and building operations the norm.  We continuously take action to reduce property operating costs and environmental footprints by educating the industry and providing clients with sustainable energy efficient solutions for their real estate.

Whenever possible we incorporate LEED* building standards into our projects while maintaining strict focus on payback periods and financial viability.

We have extensive experience in maximizing value for our clients through energy retrofits and LEED developments. Having implemented portfolio wide (+2.5M SF) energy retrofits and being the development manager of a historic renovation in LoDo (Lower Downtown) Denver into a cutting edge LEED Platinum building, we understand the importance of creating lasting change through financially feasible energy solutions.

* LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction and operation of high performance Green buildings. Administered by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), the LEED rating system measures performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: site planning, water management, energy, material use and indoor environmental quality.
