Ensure that what looks good on paper will operate smoothly and cost-effectively once occupied. During the design phase, Bright Power identifies trade-offs that will help you select the best systems and equipment for each new multifamily development.
Energy and water investments that boost net operating income.
Bright Power works with development teams to design innovative, efficient, and high-performing buildings. Throughout the design and development process, we ensure the right high-performing systems are integrated. The depth of our knowledge in both constructing new developments and improving the performance of existing buildings allows us to deliver custom solutions that will work in the real world, not just on paper.
Go beyond high-end fixtures and finishes.
Integrating proven high-performing systems and building components will keep you ahead of the competition. These systems will add revenue to your net operating income and will appeal to the growing number of environmentally responsible residents who expect a healthy and environmentally responsible home.
Not sure where to start?
Build in resiliency with solar photovoltaic (PV), cogeneration, and battery storage. Our on-site generation solutions provide savings, increase resident safety, build site resiliency, and keep your building operating during grid outages or blackouts. When you combine these technologies, like with Bright Power’s Resilient Power Hub that integrates all three, you can increase their impact. Based on your unique building design, we will recommend the right resiliency solution(s) for you.
From determining which certifications make the most sense for your project to ensuring certification, Bright Power will be there every step of the way to lead the process. Whether it is Passive House (reduces heating and cooling demand by 90% and energy demand by 75%), Enterprise Green Communities, LEED, or ENERGY STAR, we will perform the rigorous inspections, testing, and verification necessary to achieve certification. Learn more about our green building certification services here.
We collaborate with design teams during initial design before construction to ensure that execution mirrors design. We will work with contractors in the field, diagnose, and resolve any problems before they become thorny post-occupancy issues. Learn more about Bright Power commissioning here.
You’ve put the time—and money—into building your new development. Don’t let the handoff to operations diminish the investments you have made in high-efficiency equipment and systems.
Let Bright Power manage the transition and then act as extensions to your team post-occupancy, helping facilities managers react to building systems’ needs and resolving issues before they become critical. Bright Power’s MoBIUS® (Management of Building Information, Utilities, and Systems) and suite of energy management services will protect your new building systems with ongoing commissioning, real-time monitoring, and continuous energy management.
We present sustainability plans to lenders, demonstrating their long-term financial benefits to each property. With our experience in improving existing buildings, we have the data to prove similar projects’ success. We’ll provide lenders the data and financial reporting on your behalf.
We understand the ins and outs of state and local sustainability-related incentive programs. With our extensive knowledge of the New York State and New York City incentive landscape, we will find the best incentive programs to fit your development.
Staying on top of your new building’s performance begins here. Benchmark, analyze, track, and report usage and cost with Bright Power’s EnergyScoreCards platform. Doing so will allow you to understand energy and water performance at the property and portfolio level. With your dedicated Bright Power Energy Analyst and our team of experts, you will make timely, cost-effective decisions that increase savings. Our analytics platform easily integrates with ENERGY STAR Portfolio Manager, HUD, financing agencies, Enterprise Green Communities, GRESB, USGBC, and ULI Greenprint, providing reporting, certification submission, and compliance.
