Tax Credits, Incentives & Certifications

Incentive & Certification Stacking

Our work with the project team provides value engineered program compliance and maximized incentives to the developer.

We compare low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) program strategies to help determine the most time and cost conscious path for your project. We also identify and guide the team through additional incentive options to ensure benefits to the developer are maximized.

Design Phase Optimization

Our building science experts review design details and collaborate with the project team to ensure plans and specifications include the necessary and exclude the unnecessary.  Our wide bandwidth of project involvement (across design, construction & maintenance/management phases) along with our long history of diagnostic experience adds additional practical perspective that helps the project team optimize the design to minimize construction & occupancy phase surprises.

Certification Integration

We bring process continuity, program technical support and quality assurance to the ever changing landscape of tax credit work. 

The custom support we provide for each project includes communication on all of the certification items for review.  We bring continuity to the process regardless of the number of building program layers, versions of the programs and variations from state to state.  This helps our clients meet high-performance building standards like Energy Star, EarthCraft, NGBS, ZeroEnergyReady, 45L, CPACE and more without feeling like they are navigating a new format on every project.
