Firm Profile

Since our founding in 2002, Green Ideas has built an extensive resume of high-performance development and sustainable building experience.  We have managed the certification of over 100 LEED projects and have been involved in many other sustainable projects around the world. As a Certified B Corporation, we are actively involved with the community in which we live, work and play! Our focus for community involvement stems from our passion to continuously educate anyone and everyone who is interested in making the built environment a better place to live.

Our clients include private corporations, government agencies, universities, and real estate developers.  We have worked in close synergy with many building owners and design, construction, and operations professionals throughout the United States and abroad.

Our staff includes architects, engineers, construction and business professionals who share a strong commitment to improving the sustainability of business operations and the built environment.  Our capabilities are further enhanced through our nationwide network of subject matter experts whom we call upon to meet our clients’ most demanding sustainability challenges.

The Green Ideas project approach follows the integrative design process.  We work with all stakeholders from the project start to implement an integrative approach to planning, design, construction, and operations.  We challenge project team members to identify “state-of-the-shelf” technologies and to develop sustainable strategies that push toward outcomes that include net-zero energy, water, and waste performance with maximized lifecycle cost benefits.  This proactive process allows project teams to develop structures and systems that integrate holistically to create resource-efficient projects with minimal impact on the environment and maximum return on investment.

A cornerstone of our approach is our commitment to evaluate each project from a business perspective.  We are proud of our history of finding new ways for our clients to implement sustainable solutions with a key focus on business outcomes.  We evaluate the projected performance and financial implications of sustainable strategies for our clients while considering project objectives, sustainability parameters, conservation of resources, available incentives, and business goals.

Green Ideas maintains a corporate headquarters in the Phoenix, AZ metropolitan area and has satellite offices in Tucson, AZ, Albuquerque, NM and Durango, CO
