Successful Commercial Interiors Is a Communication Exchange
It's been proven that greening your building operations can save you money over time, provide healthier occupant spaces, and safeguard the environment. The path to realizing these achievements relies on relationships as much as it does operational strategies. When pursuing green commercial interiors projects or LEED certification, the way landlords and tenants work together is crucial.
Building owners across the nation are increasingly paying for sustainable building features to improve their building footprint and attract tenants. Recognize that once you've prepared your building and provided the path for tenants to build out greener spaces, you'll get the best return on your investment if you remain involved in the tenant improvement process.

You can build value and appeal for the rising number of environmentally conscientious companies through low-cost strategies that help tenants achieve LEED for Commercial Interiors certification. Facilitating certification will help lure and maintain tenants, and these strategies benefit your building and operations in the process.
Tenant improvement projects offer an ideal opportunity to create high-performance spaces that safeguard the welfare of the employees, visitors, and the environment. Fortunately, there is an array of budget-conscious choices for developing green tenant improvement projects, and when long-term benefits are factored in, the field of options widens even further.
Having a building that operates more efficiently reduces operation and maintenance costs (at the very least). While there are several ways to make that happen, a green lease can help you get there.
Electricity costs continue to rise and utility pricing models are changing rapidly. Real-time pricing programs have already been implemented in some states, and many utilities have programs allowing members to reduce their energy costs. Is your building ready to save money with strategies in place for demand-response and the smart grid?
