State and Local Ordinance Consulting


We are benchmarking professionals and agents for quality assurance. Developing an accurate benchmark helps owners and operators make well informed decisions about capital investments to improve energy performance and help craft future regional energy policy. Viable provides a suite of training and consulting services to keep your property administrators ahead of the curve, or simply ensure that your team is never held in violation of any such ordinance by managing the process outright. These city and state requirements do not apply to all buildings, allow us to help your team navigate the criteria and where possible, find exceptions.
