Green Building:
We offer a variety of green building services, including the following: 

LEED Support Services: Our LEED support services include LEED project management, strategy research, training for the EED AP role, and construction administration support. While some firms want to outsource LEED project management, others want to be trained in the process to keep the role in-house in the future.

Green Building Rating System Support: Green Globes and The Natural Step are two other green building frameworks that may be fitting to your projects. We will help assess the different alternatives and select the most appropriate system for your project, and follow through with assistance as needed.

Owner’s Project Requirements: Outline your priorities in a sustainability roadmap for your design teams to follow on all current and future projects.

Green Building Goal Setting: Strategically determine green building goals for your facilities and projects.

Process Management: Break out of the traditional, linear process to capitalize on green building efforts.

Trace Collaborative, LLC is focused on sustainability within the design and construction industry.  While we offer green building consulting services, we specialize in helping those in the industry organize and implement corporate sustainability within their offices, as there is often less attention here than to the final green building product.  We help firms establish and embrace core values for their offices that can be communicated to staff as well as clients, while creating a process and timeline for implementation and in-house education.  The result is a shift in design culture that will not only benefit the environment, but also your clients, your projects, your processes, and your employees. Education:
Educating about Sustainability -
We believe that it is of the utmost importance to educate practitioners actively engaged in creating healthy and sustainable places and spaces.  Through workshops, goal setting sessions, and trainings, we can help you engage the green building and sustainability discussion at another level, capitalizing on your existing resources and helping to position you as a leader in the green building movement.

Educating through Sustainability - 
We strongly believe that each project must have an active education component, to inform and enlighten the users about both their spaces and the greater environment. Our research addresses the integration of sustainability into education, based on ecological education theories in education research, and is focused on the integration into formal educational.
Facilitation & Charrettes:
Trace Collaborative understands the value of facilitating a holistic, collaborative planning process that harnesses the talents and energies of all interested parties to create and support a feasible plan.
