FOLSOM, CA, October 09, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Envision Realty Services, Inc. announced they received notification from the U.S. Green Building Council that their 50th Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance project has become LEED Certified, solidifying their status as the largest full-service LEED Consulting company in the nation.
Envision Realty Services, Inc. is in its third year of operation and has experienced incredible growth in the Green Building industry since its inception. Envision Realty Services, Inc. is a progressive full-service real estate company determined to bring sustainability to all aspects of commercial and residential real estate. The rate of growth they have experienced is a testament to the longevity of green operations and to the commitment to sustainability from the commercial real estate industry. Envision Realty Services, Inc. expects this upward trend to continue.
"We show that going green is not just good for the environment, it is good for business," said President/CEO, Craig Sheehy. "Our goal is to have 100 projects LEED certified by this time next year. With 35 projects and approximately 14 million square feet currently in process and another 70 projects in the pipeline, we feel confident we will meet our objective."
Buildings that are built green are more energy and water efficient than comparable buildings but there are definite steps Existing Buildings can take to reduce their carbon footprint. The focus of Envision Realty Services is to save water and energy and make the indoor air quality in these buildings better. They do this with a 20-week LEED submittal process that produces the best life-cycle cost impact with improved environmental performance. This process keeps costs and on-site staff time to a minimum. These projects are coming in with a 69% ROI and less than a two-year payback with the project's total LEED costs.
