The Energy Policy Act of 2005 created a tax deduction for energy efficient buildings found in Section 179D of the Federal Tax Code. Section 179D provides a tax deduction for energy efficiency improvements to commercial buildings. A building may qualify for a tax deduction under Section 179D for as much as $1.80 per square foot for owners and designers.
Our Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit team helps companies recognize tax savings opportunities available from the R&D tax credit to lower tax liability and, therefore, increase cash flow available for other needs.
With Professional Engineering licenses in 40 states, our Mechanical Electrical and Plumbing (MEP) design capability covers a broad spectrum from complex to the simplest of systems, large and small buildings, public or private. We pride ourselves on capability and detail.
Building Energy Modeling
Building Energy Models (BEMs) are needed for new building and retrofit design, code compliance, green certification like LEED and WELL, qualification for tax credits and utility incentives, and real-time building control. BEMs are also used in large-scale analyses to develop building energy-efficiency codes and inform policy decisions.
