We can then determine together what and how we can do better next—how we can deliver more efficient, healthy buildings at the best value to our customer, buildings that will perform and be exceptional work environments. CBE’s leadership in culling this data set and their expertise in furthering building health and efficiency is not only exciting, it’s a necessity. We want to be a part of it,” says John Home, Rudolph and Sletten’s Director of Sustainability.
