In commercial real estate, trying to sort through the government mandates, Energy Star Ratings and LEED Certification processes that affect our industry is nearly impossible without expert consult"
Irvine, California (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
In addition to offering best-in-breed commercial real estate brokerage advisement, Irvine, California-based 360 Commercial Partners offers its clients an array of complimentary value-added services, including the expert consult of Orange County’s first certified “green” commercial real estate expert, broker Geoff DeWolf.
“In commercial real estate, trying to sort through the government mandates, Energy Star Ratings and LEED Certification processes that affect our industry is nearly impossible without expert consult, said DeWolf. “At 360 Commercial Partners, we specialize in helping clients navigate the complex new world of ‘green’ commercial real estate, including the largely uncharted waters of sustainability.”
In addition to playing a key role on 360 Commercial Partners’ Office Advisory - the #1-selling office building team (#4 in all of Southern California) - DeWolf educates 360 Commercial Partners’ clients on the benefits of certifying their offices via the US Green Building Council’s LEED program – as well as on other eco-business initiatives that will positively impact their businesses, going beyond the important environmental benefits to demonstrate how sustainable strategies can generate significant energy savings; increase annual rental income, occupancy percentages, and property value; and provide a compelling differentiator to potential tenants.
“LEED-Certified office buildings increase employee efficiency and reduce absenteeism,” says DeWolf. “More natural light, better air quality and a more comfortable room temperature makes for a more pleasant place to work.”
360 Commercial Partners agrees with the LEED case for productivity. The firm’s office is situated at 2211 Michelson, Orange County’s “greenest” office building, with a USGBS LEED-Certified Silver rating. In addition, 360 Commercial Partners designed its offices to exceed LEED Silver standards, as sustainability is an important part of the firm’s DNA.
“From the furniture, to our paper recycling program to our cleaning products, we make a conscious effort to positively impact our environment,” says Louis Tomaselli, founder and managing partner of 360 Commercial Partners. “Being ‘green’ also demonstrates that we value our best-in-industry staff and want to provide healthiest, most comfortable offices for them - which increases our productivity and helps the environment at the same time.”
360 Commercial Partners has taken further steps by joining USGBC’s Orange County chapter, and is aligning with other LEED-Certified businesses and learning from their efforts.
