Prescriptive Energy Code Consulting
Let’s build something that meets or exceeds your objectives. Offering services for several building certifications, we are available to perform a variety of roles on the design / build team. We offer certifications through LEED, Energy Smart, Green Globes, and Passive House.
Certifying your good work can give your company a competitive edge as your name will be listed on the national register for each certification
When you are in the planning process an Energy Model provides measurable options to evaluate available solutions to improve building performance. We create computer models of building systems and analyze them to preemptively find areas of improvement.
Outputs can incorporate the system feasibility, greenhouse gas emissions, cumulative financial costs, natural resource use, and energy efficiency of the system. Models can be used to evaluate potential designs, comparing building assemblies, assist with material selection or determine performance for anticipated building codes.
Sustainable Code Inspections
In Summit County we are contracted with the building department to perform building inspections and provide final approvals. We know these codes inside and out and can help you implement them into your building plans.

The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Index is the industry standard by which a home's energy efficiency is measured. It’s also the nationally recognized system for inspecting and calculating a home's energy performance. Deeper Green works with contractors to complete HERS Ratings as part of the building process. It’s important to know, a low HERS Index Score can command a higher price. The lower the number, the more energy efficient the home.
The U.S. Department of Energy has determined that a typical resale home scores 130 on the HERS Index while a standard new home is awarded a rating of 100.
- A home with a HERS Index Score of 70 is 30% more energy efficient than a standard new home
- A home with a HERS Index Score of 130 is 30% less energy efficient than a standard new home
