CONSULTING

In addition to our design and construction work, we offer residential and commercial top-to-bottom turn-key sustainability that can be tailor-made to fit any scope or facet of your project or company. Why pay several different companies to merely come in and evaluate the different areas of your facility or company when you could just hire one that not only gives you a detailed complete assessment of where and what sustainable solutions make sense for your overall objectives, but has the resources, expertise and networks to implement these solutions? After all, what good is a to-do list if nothing ever gets done? Below is a snapshot of just some of services included in our turn-key sustainability solutions.

    • LEED project management: With the USGBC’s LEED certification program now the recognized standard in third-party certified green building, it is important for your firm to have someone that can coordinate and oversee the often times complicated and time-consuming LEED certification process. This not only saves time, but can often times save thousands of dollars in additional review phases and construction delays. Unlike most LEED consultants/APs, our LEED Accredited Professionals have expertise and experience on both the project side and reviewer side of the process. Jeff Demetriou is not only a LEED AP BD+C, but he is also a GBCI-certified LEED Project Reviewer. Directly responsible for the review and  certification of more than 300 projects throughout the world, Jeff understands what reviewers are looking for when a project submits for their certification, and he can prevent your project from becoming entangled and slowed down in many of the common snags that hold up most projects in the LEED review process.
  • Sustainability coordination, design implementation, project management and policy consulting
      Achieving a truly green and sustainability-focused end product is not easy, and it can be unnecessarily expensive, time-consuming, and counterproductive unless you have knowledgeable and experienced people laying out all of the options and making the right decisions for a project. We can oversee any and every aspect relating to the sustainability side of your project by providing providing technical and strategic support throughout the entire development process. By fully integrating into the design and project management teams, we are able to manage all of the sustainability-aspects related to a project while ensuring that their implementation is done within the budgetary, operational, and environmental goals. We also provide consulting and education for environmental and sustainable business policy for company’s or businesses looking to increase their environmentally conscious public profile while lessening their environmental footprint.
  • Energy-efficiency
      One of the easiest and most effective ways of quickly and significantly affecting your bottom line and the environment in a positive way is through energy-efficiency. Striking the right balance between effective implementations and budgetary restrictions to achieve it can be tricky if you’re not working with experienced professionals. We know what works and the economics involved in getting it in place.
  • Full scale recycling solutions
      90% of all ‘waste’ can be recycled or reused. That means most facilities spend thousands of dollars each year on dumpster fees to dispose of material that could have been recycled…AT HALF THE PRICE! Recycling doesn’t only make sense from an environmental standpoint, but a financial one as well. We are partnered with one of the most efficient and knowledgeable recycling companies in the Southeast and can turn your trash problem into a sustainable solution.
  • Green technology and material sourcing/design/installation
      One of the most rapidly expanding markets today, green building products are an important component to a successfully executed sustainable project. However; there are countless number of products and technologies that are either unnecessarily expensive or simply are not effective at what they’re designed to provide. Only individuals who are aware of, and have experience with, these various products and technologies can make effective, informed and accurate decisions regarding their sourcing and implementation.
  • Renewable energy system design and installation
      We can design and install almost any type of renewable energy system available. Our installers are some of the most experienced/qualified in the country and we use the most top of the line equipment. Having over 15 years of experience in the solar and wind industry, our installers are NABCEP (North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners) certified which is the highest certification a solar installer can, and should, have. With substantial federal and state tax incentives essentially offsetting the majority of the cost for newly installed solar systems, any project that wants, or is considering, solar should act now; especially commercial projects as the tax incentives are even greater.

Whether your goals are to have a modern sustainable home for yourself or a net-zero skyscraper for your company HQ, PUSH/PULL’s excellent attention to detail and experienced coalition of professionals will insure your project exceeds expectations. Please contact us for further details.
