Residential Cooperative Building on the Upper East Side

“The fuel conversion project has proven to be complex and time-consuming. IGP had to advocate on our behalf to obtain a positive ruling from Con Edison for additional low pressure gas service. IGP also enabled us to receive approval for NYSERDA’s Multifamily Carbon Emission Reduction Program grant to help pay for the design and construction of this project.”  The Cooperative Board Treasurer

Commercial Office Building in Chelsea

“The Board of this historic landmark commercial office building achieved an Energy Star benchmarking rating of 64. Since the Board continues to invest in energy efficiency improvements to the building, including new windows, it decided to seek the coveted “Energy Star Certification”, which requires increasing its energy performance rating to 75 or higher. The Board recently hired IGP to assist it with the “early compliance” terms and conditions of  Local Law 87/09 Energy Audit & Retro-commissioning and to oversee the EPA Energy Star Label application process. During the audit process IGP brought in an historical steam heating expert who determined the building had a unique two-pipe/air vent steam heating system. The owner now knows exactly how to make this hybrid system operate with maximum efficiency.” The Senior Property Manager

“IGP was not only thorough but very easy to work with. This benchmarking procedure was very confusing to me when I first looked at it and I couldn’t figure out how I was ever going to comply with the requirements for two buildings. However, IGP took the time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions. This made it so much easier, as I was able to leave the bulk of the work in her capable hands. In addition, after the benchmarking was completed, she met with the building owners and myself to explain how we can prepare for the other new green building laws.

I soon recommended IGP to another client, with two multifamily rental buildings in Staten Island, who needed the LL84/09 Benchmarking work done quickly to meet the Department of Building’s deadline.” The Building Owners’ Accounting Firm.

“IGP assisted us in LL84/09 Benchmarking our 300,000 square foot office and warehouse building built in 1956. IGP coordinated this effort with the paper distribution company and the NYC Department of Sanitation who are our two tenants. IGP has assisted us for the last two years.”  The Building Owner and Manager
