Sharon is thoughtful, engaging, and well-organized, and working with her is a pleasure.  Our work has been focused on working with cities to develop strategic approaches to conserving energy and reducing emissions.  She is a highly valuable member of our project team, and I would not hesitate to work with her again.

- Mark Frankel – Technical Director, 
LEED Fellow, New Buildings Institute

With Sharon’s guidance, Cardona, a 48-unit apartment community we constructed in Chubbuck, Idaho, was the first multifamily project to achieve LEED platinum certification in the State of Idaho. For the past decade, Sharon’s counsel has been materially important to all of our multifamily developments constructed since then. Further, when we decided to form a nonprofit tax-exempt organization focusing on affordable housing, Sharon was at the top of the list. She thankfully said yes, and has been an extremely valuable board member of Northwest Integrity Housing Co. Sharon has my highest and unqualified recommendation.

LEED CONSULTING to certify your building. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is an internationally recognized green building certification system, providing third-party verification that a building or community was designed and built using strategies such as energy savings, water efficiency, emissions reduction, improved indoor air quality and stewardship of resources. Eco Edge specializes in providing support services for project teams pursuing LEED certification such as training on the LEED process, design charrette facilitation and management of documentation.
