Foundational Values


foundational values

We are a small group who hold the conviction that through better construction practice and management, we can help developers, architects, contractors and residents achieve healthier, resilient, and sustainable multi-family buildings. We provide clear, concise and value-focused consulting on sustainable, energy efficient, healthy housing.


As the population shifts and grows, more people are calling a multifamily building home. Our vision is to move the multifamily market to conscious development and management that result in sustainable buildings that support the people who build them, call them home and the communities that surround them.

Guiding Principles

In the whirlwind of daily life, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. We allow these four principles to anchor our professional lives:

  • Show Up: Do what you say you will do. Be present. Nothing builds a relationship faster than face-to-face, and nothing destroys it faster than failing to deliver on a commitment. If you commit to a networking organization, be consistent in your attendance. Spend time with your colleagues.
  • Sense of Urgency: Return phone calls and emails faster than expected. Recognize that nothing reduces a client’s stress like a deliverable that arrives early. Move like there are a limited number of hours in the day. Think about what is the most important thing for you to do next. Do not procrastinate.
  • Be Curious: Ask questions. Read a lot. Be open and humble. Contemplate problems. Have interesting conversations with our clients, our colleagues and the person next to you on the plane. Our field is a place where curious people thrive.
  • Never Let Them See You Sweat: Pressure makes diamonds, but let’s be honest; no one cares how diamonds are made. Everyone is busy and stressed – the best make it look easy.
