Exploring the intersection of profitable urban development & sustainability to make spaces better for people

ABOUT ME

A holistic approach to sustainable urban development is the future.

Spaces can be repurposed in a way that helps the environment, helps residents, and offers a high return on investment. In a time where demand for real estate is drastically changing, smart investment and design will be needed to stay ahead of the curve and keep spaces desirable.

As the leader of the Real Estate Development team at Altanova, I help organizations move into this future by working on the following:

  • Decarbonization Strategy (science-based targets, decarbonization roadmaps, carbon accounting)

  • Design & Construction Advisory (net-zero, passive house, LEED, WELL, Fitwel, BREEAM)

  • Health & Wellbeing (IEQ monitoring, thermal comfort, viral transmission mitigation)

  • Resiliency Planning (TCFD, climate resiliency, risk management, benchmarking & compliance)

  • Portfolio Operations (global CRE strategy, workplace strategy, materiality assessment)
