Sustainability

Enhance building performance, reduce environmental impact, and improve the efficiency of your project through our suite of Sustainability Services.

Sustainability Services

Green practices and programs to help you achieve overall building wellness, energy efficiency, and occupancy comfort.

As we become increasingly more aware of the impact that the built industry has on our environment, the demand for sustainable buildings has, and will continue to, skyrocket. At Jordan & Skala, we understand the importance of implementing green practices in our design strategies that enhance building performance, reduce environmental impact, and lower operational costs. 

Since 2009, our team of experts has specialized in a wide range of Sustainability services specifically tailored to meet the unique needs and Owner requirements of each project. Our extensive experience, as well as our close collaboration with our in-house MEP design team, provides us with an in-depth understanding of sustainable building practices, how engineered systems are intended to perform, overall building science, as well as virtually every green building program currently available at a local, national, and global level. 

Whether you’re looking to achieve a specific building or financial incentive program, or would like to implement a particular energy, residential, or construction service, our Sustainability team has the technical knowledge to deliver guidance, education, and implementation to reach and achieve your project goals. From the initial planning and design phase, through construction and operation, we work closely with our clients to implement feasible, practical, and measurable sustainability design solutions.

At JSE, we believe that sustainability isn’t solely about being environmentally friendly, but is also about creating buildings and spaces that are focused on overall wellness, comfortability, and efficiency.
