We make your building work for you.

Increasing Market Value with Short and Long-Term Returns

In commercial projects, design and construction goals have to balance with value and return on investment. Energy efficiency can be the difference between a successful venture or a loss. We work with owners, investors, contractors, and occupants to determine the most cost-effective solutions to enhance a project’s building performance by increasing market value and short and long-term returns.

With a combined 50 years of experience in both design and construction, Better Building Works brings a depth of local experience and building science knowledge to design, construction and building operations phases. Our approach always includes an initial consultation and building / design assessment, followed by customized recommendations to offer the highest short and long-term value for your project. We focus on verifiable conditions that yield measurable results to maximize performance and return on investment.


What We Do

Building & Processes Performance Assessment

Building science-based diagnostics with a return-on-investment reality check. An audit will pay for itself and is the best single thing you can do for your building.

Diagnostics and Forensics

Wicked problems often have simple solutions. Our building-as-a-system approach finds and solves negative feedback loops. (We do the math).

Incentive Profiling

Local/State/Federal Tax Credits and Rebates, Return on Investment Projections

Annual Performance Tracking

Have some peace of mind that your building is performing optimally.


Code Verification

Building codes are getting more strict about performance targets. Blower door, fan flows, infrared, etc. Compliance without in-field diagnostics is a fairy tale. Don’t be fooled by visual compliance paths!


Master Planning

Plan for the long haul.

Design for New Buildings, Renovations and Additions

You can trust that verifiable performance is behind every beautiful design we help you create for your new or existing building.

Building Certification

Sometimes, a building certification is required – or desired – to prove a building’s value and performance. We speak LEED, WELL, Energy Star, HERS and more!


Design/Construction Liaison

When you need a trusted navigator to guide and verify your objectives are met, whether you are working with another design firm or are ready to build.
