SACRAMENTO, Calif. — CodeGreen Solutions has won a multi-year contract with the state of California Department of General Services to provide sustainability, energy efficiency, and Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Existing Buildings (LEED-EB) services for over 60 buildings around the state. In response to the state’s Executive Order B-18-12 requiring all large existing state buildings to achieve LEED-EB certification by Dec. 31, 2015, the Department of General Services, the agency responsible for real estate and other business support for the state’s agencies, solicited bids from sustainability firms.
In light of the drought and increasing emphasis on energy conservation in California, “We are extremely supportive of the state of California’s initiative and thrilled to be a part of the unique and bold action California is taking,” said Patricia Lee, managing principal at CodeGreen Solutions.
The LEED certification process will build upon DGS’s current green initiatives and expand them to achieve higher levels of performance and efficiency in various operational aspects. The CodeGreen team will also provide engineering analysis to identify energy saving measures and IAQ testing to make sure building occupants are receiving healthy levels of ventilation.
CodeGreen Solutions has built an expert team of partners that includes Green Building Services Inc. and EcoCosm Inc. to help the Department of General Services fulfill its commitment to improving building performance and reducing its impact on the environment.
