Our clients, smart people with smart money, like action. Learn how to reduce energy use in your home or business while you are cooler in summer, warmer in winter, and richer all year long.

Whether you want to reduce utility bills or design a new, high-performing building, Better Building Works brings a depth of local experience and building science knowledge to residential and commercial buildings.

What we do comes down to this:

Measure - We always begin with you by listening: What are your needs? Ideas? Concerns? We help to clarify your vision and the next steps. For existing buildings, we start with the data from quantitative, scientific diagnostics.

Fix - Then, based upon our customized Energy+ROI modeling, we perform energy+design services to offer the highest short and long-term value for your project.

Verify - Then, we verify that the solutions we provided are working as they should. If something isn't right, we make it right.
