NEW YORK--()--Honest Buildings announced today that it is launching its platform in Los Angeles and releasing information for over 200,000 commercial and mixed-use buildings, helping millions of Southern Californians find and connect with the best buildings, companies and professionals for their commercial real estate needs.
“We are excited to showcase our portfolio of work and make new connections in the industry.”
In just six months the rapidly growing real estate network has unlocked information for over 700,000 buildings across the country, including pictures, square footage, building ownership and management, projects and renovations, whether it’s rated by ENERGYSTAR and much more.
On top of this search engine for buildings, the Honest Buildings network allows individuals and companies to showcase their work via a personal or company profile, and connect with one another to drive word of mouth marketing and acquire new business. Over 75,000 connections have been made among people, companies, buildings and projects.
“Honest Buildings is a robust platform of commercial building data and a huge networking opportunity for architects, contractors, facility managers, building owners, and tenants,” said Marky Moore, CEO of Capital Review Group. “We are excited to showcase our portfolio of work and make new connections in the industry.”
Capital Review Group (CRG) is one of the innovative west coast companies joining Honest Buildings as a premium member for the Los Angeles launch. CRG is a leading partner for contractors, engineering firms, and architects in co-creating strategies to maximize clients’ return on investment through energy efficient design and tax incentives, and is a great example of just one of the wide range of highly specialized companies that can take advantage of the growing Honest Buildings network.
Building owners, managers and tenants can also use the platform to distribute requests for qualifications (RFQ) for upcoming projects and be matched with the best architects, contractors, brokers and wide range of other companies. As the platform continues to grow and aggregate more information about buildings from public, private, and user generated sources, organizations like the Better Buildings Challenge are seeing how the increased transparency catalyzes competition and leads to more demand for higher performance, energy efficient buildings.
“Our goal is to significantly improve the energy and water performance of LA’s existing buildings,” said Dave Hodgins of the LA Better Buildings Challenge. “We are working with Honest Buildings because they are an important catalyst to make that happen.”
