Energy Management

Alpha Terra knows energy is data, and our approach to EM is data driven. Our energy audits are only the first step to on-site assessments of the existing mechanical, lighting, building envelope, and building automation systems; followed by evaluating utility records and investigated control sequences.  Our team will balance existing built assets/liabilities with demand while accounting for energy contractual liabilities. Our goal is to develop cost-savings plans for improvements that pay for themselves initially, and later move those savings to profits.


Alpha Terra’s team are leaders in environmental education and design with a focus on existing buildings’ operations and maintenance. Going beyond best intentions, we furnish our clients with measured results for natural resources, energy resources, and passive optimization. The truly “sustainable” design does not last forever, it is one that enables stewardship, highlights when systems have fallen outside of recommended parameters, and is eminently adaptable to changing space needs. In addition to establishing the targets for a sustainable design, we also demonstrate how to consistently hit those targets.

Cost Estimating

Alpha Terra’s cost estimators have experience with a wide variety of projects and can tailor their cost estimates to your project. These cost estimates are based on current market pricing and can be used to gauge your project’s entire fee from start to finish.

My interest in the environment and sensor technology drove our initial environmental geophysics business start-up. Since then we have expanded to offer full engineering services.


I watched ATI grow up from the sidelines and was excited to expand the Environmental team to a full-service all hazards consultancy.
