modern commercial buildings

SK Collaborative provides certification of new light commercial construction under the EarthCraft Light Commercial (ECLC), EarthCraft Sustainable Preservation (ECSP), and Green Globes programs.

ECLC and ECSP are regional green building certification programs offering third-party recognition for environmentally responsible design and construction practices for small-scale, or light commercial buildings in the Southeast. These programs focus on site planning, energy and water efficiency, building durability, and improved occupant health and productivity. EarthCraft Light Commercial is best suited for commercial building projects sized 50,000 square feet or less, however all projects may be considered on a case-by- case basis. ECSP is appropriate for existing older buildings where retaining existing structure and systems is appropriate. These programs meet the requirements of the City of Decatur High Performance Building Ordinance.

Green Globes is a national green building certification program that also meets the requirements of the City of Decatur Ordinance and the Chamblee Georgia requirement for all buildings over 20,000 SF to be certified through LEED or Green Globes. 

Additional services for commercial construction include ASHRAE building audits, blower door building leakage testing, energy modeling, and plan reviews.
