LOS ANGELES - IBE Consulting Engineers (IBE), a leading mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) engineering firm, announced the addition of Beckham Price, LEED AP, as sustainable services manager.

An early adopter of sustainable building practices, Price has worked in construction management from both the client and contractor sides, in addition to consulting on green building and design.

Price’s knowledge of international rating systems, experience as an on-site construction manager, and expertise in sustainable building systems lends itself to developing strategies for the entire building team, including architectural, landscape, and construction partners.

“LEED and other rating methodologies have given us focus, format, and a platform to reintegrate the specialties and take advantage of the best parts of all of them,” said Price. In addition to being a LEED Accredited Professional by the U.S. Green Building Council, he is a Green Star Accredited Professional with the Green Building Council of Australia.

The company’s projects include large office buildings, museums, entertainment facilities, libraries, laboratories, film archives, educational facilities, retail buildings, and housing projects. For more information, visit www.ibece.com.
