It really isn’t. Both approaches seek to create the most sustainable, comfortable and environmentally friendly buildings possible, for the lowest possible cost. HPC just orders the enhancements differently. It’s simple; we categorize improvements by payback period. Upgrades with an immediate payback are no brainers. So are upgrades with 3 to 5 year paybacks. At 7 and 10 years, the building owner’s financial realities weigh more heavily. Cash flow, the ability to service debt, future value and exit strategies enter the picture, and no two clients are alike. This is where the hard decisions are made, and this is where our expertise lies.
