Promoting portfolio value

Increasingly, sustainability is becoming a discipline that supports property owners’ businesses much like legal, finance, sales, or IT services. SSC uses over decades of experience to provide building owners and property managers the services and tools they need to increase the efficiency of their buildings and generate value.

Integrating sustainable practices across a real estate portfolio can be a difficult task without standardized playbooks and procedures. SSC works to develop sustainability guidelines for both new construction and existing buildings for a variety of portfolios.

 

“Our emphasis on sustainability has helped us reduce impact and cost. We have learned that even simple changes can have a big impact.”

Chris Altmansberger, CertainTeed Corporation


SSC's approach to developing Construction and Operations Guidelines ensures a practical, easily implemented program that will be relevant for the entire portfolio—whether in a single region, across various climate zones, or spanning international borders. With a focus on meeting an organization's Corporate Social Responsibility and financial objectives, SSC crafts standards and guidelines to:

  • Reduce carbon footprint

  • Improve stakeholder health and wellbeing

  • Increase operational efficiency

  • Adhere to various green building standards such as LEED, ENERGY STAR, IgCC, CalGreen

  • Set comprehensive guidelines for new construction, operations, and/or tenant fit-out requirements

  • Establish detailed templates for construction specifications and policies for existing buildings

In addition to developing the guidelines, SSC offers training for executives, property managers, and building engineers to ensure guidelines are faithfully implemented.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Rating System is designed to guide and distinguish high-performing commercial and institutional projects. LEED certification for new construction and existing buildings creates increased property value and can reduce overall operating expenses across a building’s life.

 

“The SSC team is first-class! Their guidance and support was invaluable in assisting Liberty to achieve our first LEED for Existing Buildings Certification and to provide sustainable, high performance real estate for our customers.”

Dennis Skelly, Liberty Property Trust

“Tad and SSC did a great job customizing the message to the audience, and the level of engagement, even with such a big group, was great.”

Doug Bowman, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts


SSC develops and delivers training to:

  • Introduce LEED to your audience

  • Highlight the sustainable features of your building

  • Demonstrate the value of this certification

Along with training, SSC will develop green marketing content to highlight the achievements of the LEED certification. This can be included in tenant manuals, employee handbooks, and lobby touch screens.

Tenant Attraction and Retention

Progressive organizations and tenants are seeking green workspaces for the performance and human health benefits. Studies have shown that LEED certified buildings have increased occupancy rates and command rental premiums.

Employee Engagement

Communicating corporate sustainability successes, including LEED certification, inspires employees to further this corporate commitment.
