Our expertise in green building services exceeds 20 years.

Words from our Clients

  • Our facility was in such disrepair, we were seriously considering tearing it down. With your retrofits, the comfort is 100% improved. Now we can use the capital funds (we never seem to have enough of) elsewhere.

    Bob Driffill YMCA Health & Fitness Facility / General Manager
  • Thanks for all the hard work. As soon as the new owners get settled, I will push to get your energy audits approved and implemented.

    Mike Cross Galleria Malls-Glendale Galleria / Property Manager
  • Even though this was a small project, you guys performed really well and gave us the attention and expertise deserving of a much larger project. Thanks!

    Jeff Terhoeve Grubb and Ellis / Property Manager 700 N Central, Glendale
  • Your team has really helped us shave a bundle off our renovation plans, not to mention lowering future energy costs and improving tenant comfort.

    All the Doctors at Physicians Group Glendale Medical Office / All the Doctors
  • This was an outstanding project from start to finish. Well done team. We will definitely consult with you again in the future.

    John Hickman City of Glendale / Director of Public Works
  • We were really pleased how 3fficient educated us about energy efficiency, explored many options, came up with great "out of the box" solutions, and then walked us through the whole process.

    Larry Watt City of Encinitas / Director of Public Works
  • We have used your solar lockers for a few events that we have been sponsors of now and each time they have proven to be amazing! The last event was a 4 day music festival, where we used two of the charging stations. The charging lockers were completely full after 12 minutes and remained full for the entirety of the festival! Your charging stations are a must for all of our activation areas!

    Samantha Kohn Alex & Ani / Event Marketing Manager
  • Well done folks! Thank You for the great audits and direction for our capital improvements.

    James Butcher CBRE / General Manager (801 N. Brand, Glendale)
  • This project was very beneficial to us. Your expertise helped us develop an energy master plan while saving energy and building in additional automation so we can respond to different utility price signals immediately.

    Bob Markham City of Pasadena / Public Works Administrator
  • 3fficient, and their innovative partners, have developed brilliant urban furniture that is completely self-powered and changing how we look at and interact with urban infrastructure.

    US Mayor
  • This was a marquis project, not just for Port Hueneme, but for the entire US Navy. While the energy savings are substantial, even greater value will be realized through the replication and adoption of your innovative "net zero energy" building retrofit by other public and private sector organizations. Your engineering is certainly industry leading. Thanks for the leadership and service.

    Chris Karandang US Navy / Port Hueneme (Home of the Sea Bees)
  • This project saved us more than we expected. Thanks for the hard work and keeping the subcontractors on time. Tenant comfort and reliability has improved. That makes my job more enjoyable.

    Brad Heath CBRE / Property Manager, 101 N Brand, Glendale
  • We are dedicated to providing a high quality experience for our guests as well as environmental stewardship. This project accomplishes both by making our facilities better performing, more reliable and energy efficient. Thanks for the creative solutions!

    John Stepanian Glendale Hilton / Director of Engineering
  • This project has not only made our buildings more comfortable, the learning experience has improved dramatically and allows us to illustrate renewable energy, energy efficiency and energy management first hand.

    Dr. Jean Lecuyer Glendale Community College / Director of Science Education Center
  • You guys sure turned our master planning upside down (in a positive way). It looks like we'll be a lot more efficient and provide service much more reliably than we have in the past and save more money than each year before.

    Mike Swanson Glendale Adventist Medical Center / Director, Operations (retired)
  • Thanks to your project, we won the BOMA award again. Oh yeah, our lighting and HVAC bills have gone way down too. Well done!

    Jan Church SHM Partners / Property Manager
  • Good job guys. The project was completed ahead of schedule and no change orders. Even when a tenant complained about a minor issue, you really stepped up to the plate and made them very happy.

    Darla Szala 505 N Brand / Property Manager
  • Getting power to tight urban locations or remote locations is expensive and a big hassle.  3fficient’s FreeCharge products eliminate the high costs and hassles of bringing and maintaining power to new or remote locations.

    Parks and Trails Director
  • As a global manufacturer of building materials, we spend several hundred million a year on energy. So the slightest fluctuation wreaks havoc on our budgeting and materials prices. We are thankful for your help on our global energy management team and development of our enterprise-wide, real-time energy management program.

    Gary Groner Johns Manville / Global Energy Manager
  • This is an excellent project which has greatly reduced our operating costs and control, extended the life of our equipment and most importantly improved guest comfort. Thanks for the creative ideas and making my job easier!

    Dennis Kinsley Starwood Hotels / Director of Engineering, Sheraton Harbor Island, San Diego
