HOUSTON, TX, July 09, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Last month, Green Efficient O&M (operations and maintenance) announced the expansion of their offices to several key cities across the U.S. CEO, Rick Walker, reports a welcoming attitude from the cities and owners of LEED buildings. The company takes its belief in conservation home, with many of its employees recycling, driving earth-friendly cars and supporting like-minded businesses. Because of this, they couldn't be happier to have such a great reception.
"It definitely brings a positive outlook," says the CEO. "Not just for our company or their companies, but for the environment."
Although many companies have been accused of "green washing", Green Efficient isn't one of them; they really believe in what they're doing. The Senior LEED Accredited Professional for Green Efficient is one of only six, worldwide, accredited to work in Operations and Maintenance capacities. The company is also the only LEED-AP managed building maintenance and operations company in the world that exclusively services LEED, modern and green-inspired buildings. Their renowned green janitorial and maintenance solutions, targeted for the most sustainable companies, have now found homes in over twelve cities nation wide, with Houston as their headquarters.
Now that the expansion has gone through with great success, the company has turned its focus back to its original purpose of helping green buildings stay LEED certified post-construction. This is done, in part, through their green janitorial services. With the help of a GreenEfficient LEED-AP, building owners interested in sustainable and LEED certified buildings have been able to target problem areas such as indoor air quality, recycling issues and maintaining their buildings to LEED standards.
In a candid interview about their mode of operations, an employee in the janitorial division commented, "Part of our job, from the APs on down, is to pay attention to innovative products as they become available. Greener, safer products mean a healthier workplace. We find the vendors for the product and incorporate them into our purchasing policy."
Interestingly enough, although considered an operations and maintenance company, Green Efficient also offers complete facilities management. Over a 20-year span, the company has provided those services to many business owners, including a REIT COO with a portfolio of over seventeen LEED certified and registered facilities. In addition, they have been an integral part of helping one of the largest cities in the U.S. keep their Gold and Silver LEED facilities operating above U.S. Green Building Council standards.
Green Efficient offices can now be found in Washington, DC; Portland, Oregon; Atlanta, Georgia; Denver, Colorado; Sacramento, California; Houston, Texas; and San Francisco, California, among others.
