Analytical Services

Analytical Services

Grumman|Butkus Associates was founded in 1973 as an energy consulting firm, and in those early years, the majority of the firm's projects consisted of energy management studies, energy grant applications, and energy consulting services. By expanding our services in the 1980s to include MEP design, GBA was able to provide our clients with the services they needed to implement the energy conservation measures recommended in our studies.

Energy studies and related analytical work remain at our firm’s foundation and currently amount to approximately 15% of our business. GBA’s energy work and experience have also helped the firm provide expert advice to clients who are interested in sustainable design certification programs, such as LEED and Green Globes.
