Medical Office Buildings

SMARTincome w/ Efficiency Dividends is the fastest way to increase NOI for buildings already fully occupied with long term tenant leases. Medical Office Buildings can offer the highest payback and yield of any asset class in the market today. With most buildings locked in NNN leases, Efficiency Dividends are critical to unlocking energy efficiency projects for your buildings and adding new NOI to your top line.

Hospitality image placeholder

Hospitality and Full Service Hotels

With increased travel forecasted for 2023 and 2024, even modern hotel buildings can benefit from HVAC optimization and related energy efficiency measures. We've worked extensively with contractors and third parties to get projects implemented and can guide them with custom RFP language as needed.
