Four Pillars of GEMM Masterplanning Process
GEMM's expertise in the following disciplines serve as the foundation of our success:
GEMM strategies allow for Decision Makers to easily evaluate practical solutions that best suit the needs of Ownership, Occupancy, and the Environment throughout the decarbonization project.
Energy Planners & Technical Advisement
GEMM strategies allow for Decision Makers to easily evaluate practical solutions that best suit the needs of Ownership, Occupancy, and the Environment throughout the decarbonization project. GEMM aims to explore multiple technical possibilities to design an energy savings and generation package that best fits the property. Our advisory capacity expands beyond the building shell, advising on complicated grid-interactive designs such as Micro-Grids, Battery Storage, and Renewable Generation. Further, GEMM develops the required technical documents to qualify for various financing and grant programs. We have extensive history collaborating with our Partner’s in-house Engineers.
Specialty Owner’s Representative & Professional Commissioning
GEMM facilitates the collaborative development of the Owner's project requirements and verifies the end-user receives the appropriate efficiency, decarbonization, and resiliency benefits. GEMM does not traditionally oversee the details of the project installation, electing for cooperation with a General Contractor or Construction Manager. GEMM will partner with all trades to remove hurdles and pitfalls that occur when undertaking complicated infrastructure projects. GEMM Commissioning professionals will independently verify the final installation is in line with the Owner’s goals ensuring confidence in the project’s success and future operation.

There is unprecedented government and public support for energy efficiency, decarbonization, water savings, and generation projects. We find 15-20% of a project’s cost may be funded through incentives and available arbitrage payments. GEMM supports finding a program that makes the most sense for your project that includes advising accounting, legal and other operational activities to claim these incentives. GEMM helps our Partner explore asset optimization previously unconsidered, further enhancing the bottom-line and project return on investment.
