Are you considering a deep energy efficiency retrofit at your property? Does a 35% energy reduction sound good to you? Do you like saving money? Do you have commercial buildings in the Pacific Northwest?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, mark your calendar - on June 14th at 1pm PT, BetterBricks and the Smart Building Center are holding an exclusive training webinar on how to use the Spark Tool to evaluate your own commercial office building, and how to leverage the results to increase likelihood of energy efficiency measure implementation.
The Spark Tool (“Spark”) is a free, interactive online tool that can help you determine if your commercial building is a good candidate for a deep energy retrofit. This early assessment tool produces a report with estimated energy savings and real estate returns, suggested energy efficiency measures, and actionable next steps.
This webinar will focus on how to leverage Spark’s integrated technical and financial reports to communicate the business case for building renewal projects. The webinar will include an overview of the building renewal strategy, a live demonstration of Spark, and a look at the customized integrated measure packages Spark can create.
But how does Spark create value at your property? Spark acts as a key instrument in building renewal: the real estate strategy to modernize a building and improve its competitive position in the market by focusing on comprehensive energy efficiency upgrades. Using Spark results in recommendations for a 35%+ reduction of a building’s energy use and costs. This allows for repositioning your building by improving its energy performance, thus increasing the value of the asset. Learn more about the building renewal strategy in Waypoint’s earlier blog post, “A New Approach to Building Renewal.”
