Rand strives to incorporate practices and technologies that improve the operating efficiency of buildings and lessen the harmful effects to residents and the surrounding environment. Efficient building operation starts at its most basic with Rand's core services: keeping buildings well maintained and watertight and ensuring that mechanical systems function properly. Expanding on that foundation, Rand's Green Team, staffed with LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Accredited Professionals and BPI (Building Performance Institute) Certified Professionals, evaluates the growing number of materials, methods, and technologies for sustainable design and development, including the following systems and components:
To help buildings improve their energy efficiency and reduce operating costs, Rand performs energy analyses in accordance with Building Performance Institute and ASHRAE standards. A Rand team surveys the building's conditions, systems, and components, identifying operating and maintenance measures for better energy performance and increased savings. Based on our findings, Rand prepares an Energy Analysis Report that includes a recommended scope of work for improving energy efficiency and management with estimates of potential costs and savings.
As a partner in NYSERDA's Multifamily Performance Program, Rand works with participating buildings to help them obtain funding for implementing energy-efficient measures and systems. In addition, Rand assists clients seeking LEED Certification for new construction and building rehabilitation projects, which qualifies owners and developers for tax rebates, zoning allowances, and other incentives.
