Sustainability Sustainability

Whether you are looking to address long-term ownership and operational efficiencies, improve portfolio sustainability metrics or boost investment ROI, Marx|Okubo’s sustainability solutions go beyond traditional engineering to consider all elements of sustainability and their relation to current and future code requirements, industry trends, building operations, durability, and ultimately, value.

Smarter properties: building increased value.

Marx|Okubo understands the intricacies of buildings and how they often end up wasting energy and money. While green design is becoming a more standard practice and solution, it’s critical to have guiding expertise in this process to reduce the long-term operating costs of a property as well as add greater efficiencies and value to the built environment for the next generation.

The Marx|Okubo team includes architectural and engineering professionals with additional LEED, WELL, Fitwel, Certified Energy Modeling, and Certified Indoor Air Quality Professional accreditations. Providing sustainability consulting on both new construction and existing property projects, Marx|Okubo’s teams help owners, investors, lenders, and tenants determine the sustainability potential of a property and lifecycle cost benefits; navigate government regulations and environmental certifications; and comply with/prepare for sustainability benchmarking and reporting initiatives, such as GRESB and CRREM.
