Government & Civic

Meeting the climate challenge through exemplary building performance.

Real estate development in the government and civic sectors is expected to lead by example. With agencies accountable for cost efficiencies, local, state, and federal facilities must incorporate sustainable building principals and programs to meet fiscal responsibilities and create buildings that are healthy, impactful community assets. Sustainable publicly funded buildings save tax-payer dollars through reduced operating costs; improve environmental impact; create quality workplaces; and address the demand for local green products and services. With a deep understanding of the unique aspects of government and public work, including large stakeholder groups, cost sensitivity and the desire to make a statement, Paladino will set reachable sustainability goals, develop action plans and implement green building programs and initiatives that meet or exceed established local or federal mandates.
