Last month Principal and President of Finegold Alexander Architects, Rebecca Berry, authored an article in Banker & Tradesman, highlighting sustainable strategies utilized in our firm’s recent multifamily projects and explaining how our firm can help clients meet the new Building Emissions Reduction Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO 2.0) standards. With building operations accounting for nearly 70 percent of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, BERDO 2.0 is committed to reducing these emissions by setting a goal for all large existing buildings to achieve net zero emissions by 2050.

Finegold Alexander, through the launch of the firm’s FA Energy division and as a signatory of the 2030 Challenge, is committed to helping our clients meet their commitments toward a carbon-free future at all scales, from individual buildings to campus-wide or portfolio bases, by providing streamlined and informed recommendations to enhance energy-efficiency. 

Working alongside our clients and project teams, our recent multifamily projects are committed to a carbon free or all-electric approach. The projects range from a 159-unit development for independent and assisted living at the Balfour Brookline, to La Victoire, the redevelopment of a former Bay Village church into 18 high-end condominium units, to plans for the first all-electric development in Milton and a power purchase agreement for solar panels at a 54-unit transit-oriented development in Natick.
