Our Approach

1.LISTEN

The first step to creating a high performance building is.......to listen! We know that begins with the owner's goals. 

There are lots of ways to green your building or construction project and no one size fits all solutions. We help you develop and implement the most cost effective approach to achieving your sustainable goals.

TAG is committed to working personally with each client throughout the duration of the project to ensure that clients meet their project goals and budgets.

 

2. PLAN & COLLABORATE

As your LEED AP our role is to encourage an integrated design process. This step will allow us to determine achievable goals and implement strategy.

The most effective green projects are created when there is synergy between all members of the project team.

We will host an Charette with you and your teams. During this important event we will use everyone's knowledge and talents to collaborate on design and construction of the highest performing building for the lowest possible cost, create a sustainable community, put an efficient and effective plan in place, and give you confidence with the overall success of your project. 

 

3. PERFORM

During the design and construction submittals we will manage the collection, preparation, and organization of required documentation, including assisting the design team in the preparation of the submittal templates, product specifications and required documentation, as well as uploading information to LEED-Online.

As the project progresses, we provide continual guidance, assuring the overall goals and metrics are captured in the details of project delivery, budget and execution.
