Share your green-ness!

leed plaque

Going green is not just good for the environment, it is becoming a mandate by citizens, customers, investors and policy makers across the board.   It proves that you are being efficient with your operations and good stewards of the limited natural resources we all share.  But, without proper certifications, prospective tenants and customers may not believe those claims and may lose faith in you.  And that’s not good.

But, where do you start?  Usually the best place to start is with experienced experts…

Go ahead.  Be a Star!

3fficient has modernized hundreds of buildings and campuses for efficiency and sustainability.  We know how buildings and campuses work and what it takes to make them shining stars.

3fficient was a founding partner of energy star in 1999 and supports other certification programs like LEED, CHPS and others.  Through years of experience and development of advanced software tools, we have streamlined the processes for certification so we can provide more value for less cost.

Whether you are required to, or are considering participation in any of these programs, contact 3fficient. We’ll make your certification goals easier and more rewarding.

  • Your company's knowledge of LEED requirements is a refreshing change from the smoke screen that goes up when talking to firms with little experience.  Your fees were appropriate to the requirements and you completed the project in a timely manner.  Your assistance to our newly minted LEED AP was much appreciated.
