Our team of Green Building Consultants has helped developers, contractors and consultants implement Green Building best practices in their organizations and projects. The Alpin team works tirelessly to ensure our clients’ success.

Our Green Building Consultant Services and WELL Certification Services

Design Certification Management

We’ve worked on a vast range of LEED, Estidama, GSAS and DGNB projects so you can rest assured we’ll help you meet the sustainable design standards you require.

Well™ Certification

By enhancing the quality of life for a building’s occupants, WELL concepts can help your project command higher rents, attract and retain the most talented employees and pay you dividends in both the short and long-term.

Waste Strategies

We provide innovative waste management solutions and management plans, to help minimize waste, encourage re-use and recycling, to help you save on costs and operate more sustainably.

Water Usage

We take a detailed look at your project’s water supply and wastage to see how we can minimize water demand. We’ll suggest resource saving strategies such as low flush toilets and water taps, waterless urinals and more. By also looking at the possibility of using condensate water collection, dual piping and more solutions, we are often able to reduce water use by 50% less than EPA baselines.

Indoor Air Quality Management

Poor indoor air that is badly ventilated or contaminated by gases and air pollutants can have a big impact on the health and comfort of your building’s occupants. We’ll analyze the quality of your indoor environment to help implement Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) guidelines based on SMACNA Guidelines for Occupied Buildings Under Construction.

Renewable Energy Strategies

We develop renewable energy strategies for individual buildings, or on a site-wide basis for master planned developments. We begin by conducting a feasibility study to identify the most suitable technologies, before carrying out a full technical and financial evaluation to determine the best possible approach for your project.


Our experts can aid in designing buildings that maximizes the use of natural light. Not only does this help you save precious energy resources and cut down on costs, it also makes for a healthier space for your occupants.

Coordinating with Certification Bodies

We’ll liaise directly with the Certification Bodies (Estidama, GBCI, GORD) and organize and submit any necessary paperwork for you.

Energy Modeling

As part of our green building consultant services, we use state-of-the-art software and hardware to help predict how much energy your building will consume. This allows us to pinpoint and implement innovative energy solutions, which will help you save you resources and operational costs.

BREEAM is the UK's preferred environmental rating and sustainability assessment tool for master planning infrastructure and buildings. A BREEAM assessment relies on creating sustainable value throughout the stages of a life cycle of a building, including those that are new construction, refurbishment, and in-use.

BREEAM sets the standard for best practice in sustainable design and has become the de facto measure used to describe a building’s environmental performance. It is internationally recognized, with over 500,000 certificates issued across 77 countries.

When it comes to the decision making process for real-property investments, first cost savings are often a priority over green building and sustainable life cycle creation. A perceived lack of information about the actual costs and benefits of green buildings has led, in some cases, to concerns about whether to make a higher investment.
