To Help Businesses be Energy Independent
To Lower Your Operating Cost through Sustainable Solutions
We understand the challenge faced by Commercial Property Owners and Commercial Tenants, for growing their bottom line.
Unlike traditional businesses, Commercial Property Owners have one product to sell - an empty space.
So they must keep investing CapEx to either get someone to pay more for the space or reduce the costs associated with that space. Since all properties are different, there is no ‘One Size Fits All’ solution. We call this the CapEx Conundrum
Commercial Tenants have to generate profits and make sure overhead costs, such as lease payments don’t affect their performance.
However, leasing terms can be complicated and often times owners are passing property ownership costs on to the tenant under 'Triple Net Lease' arrangements and overcharging for common area charges. We call this the Triple-Net Threat
Our primary focus is your bottom line. Since no two commercial properties are the same, our approach is consultative and customized to meet your financial requirements
