Why opt for a resource-efficient building? Because the long-term value far outweighs the initial investment.

    A resource-conscious building is optimized to perform well, which drives down utility costs. Prices can be kept competitive, which attracts tenants and guests who appreciate affordability. Lower break-even occupancy rates protect against market variability. And investors respond well to a strong balance sheet.

    Extra capex of just two percent has been known to produce savings greater than 10 times the initial cost of building green. A resource-efficient building will also have greater market value due to its ability to deliver on the operational front.
