At Footprint, our goal is simple: how do we get to less? Less costs…less stress…less waste…these are achievements which truly make a difference for our clients, our colleagues, and, ultimately, the world. Taking a more integrated approach to sustainability services, we work side-by-side with project teams, providing an informed perspective of sustainable opportunities and considerations for each design and construction decision.
Our goal is to act as a catalyst for balance – to ask the right questions and provide possible solutions which point in the right direction. How do we know that the right direction is? It’s always the direction that points toward less energy, less time, less impact, and more sustainable developments.
A clearer look at the big picture.
True sustainable design is an integrated process – where everyone knows the overall project impact of every decision. Through the art and efficiency of energy modelling, we can provide you with precise data on how much energy your building is saving, as well as the impact of proposed options and alternatives which arise throughout the design process.
Footprint utilizes energy modelling software to compare current or baseline approaches with various energy-saving scenarios – arming the project team with the information they need to make the best possible (and most efficient) decisions.
Raising the bar while lowering costs.
Sustainable standards, technology, and the solutions they provide have rapidly evolved over the last decade. So what do you do with a building that was built 20 years ago? While new projects often receive the most attention for their steps toward sustainability, it’s existing buildings which typically provide the greatest opportunity for improvement. At Footprint, we have the project experience to provide you with a customized analysis of everything from utility bills, to metering data, to building automation trend logs – providing you with a clear path toward practical solutions which will help you achieve more by using less.
Our team will customize our strategy to meet your needs, performing any one of a number of services as required:
- Energy planning and benchmarking
- Whole building energy audits
- System performance analysis
- Building operations reviews and strategic improvements
