Case Studies

Using the lessons learned from applying the Building Renewal strategy in actual projects, NEEA has developed SPARK, an online tool that allows building managers and owners to customize their own holistic, building-wideimprovement plans. To find out how Building Renewal has saved energy and money and increased the value of properties, review the case studies below.

Why Building Renewal

Brett Phillips of Unico Properties and Wade Lange of American Assets Trust explain how Building Renewal helped them future proof their office buildings. The process lead to savings in operating expenses for tenants and more comfortable work environments for employees. Future proof your building for both its physical and financial performance.
