About Us

Eaglecliff Incorporated is an independent sustainability consulting and documentation company. We help develop viable and workable environmental visions and plans, and document both plans and implementation. One key offering is a one-day sustainability workshop that we conduct based on the requirements of defined stakeholders within your organization, from green orientation for a particular craft/trade, to corporate policy high-level perspectives. We also conduct tactical environmental assessments for strategic green planning for long and short-term implementation.

Environmental "Green" initiatives make business sense when implemented to provide a positive return on investment. That ROI might be measured in fewer sick days due to a more comfortable and clean indoor environment, reduced high-risk inventories, reduced administration of waste management, positive community recognition, lower employee turnover. The bottom line of change can be a profitable one.

  • Engagement Philosophy: Eaglecliff is committed to keeping it simple and doing only what is critical and necessary to meet criteria and requirements for your situation, with a viable ROI based on your cost of consulting and cost of recommended solution implementation. Eaglecliff participation is usually of short duration--often only a few days. We use interview, survey, and interactive discussion to determine your needs and requirements. Recommendations and guidance are then customized to your needs, both stated and observed.

  • Cost Structure: Eaglecliff provides independent consulting and transitions published and practiced research, guidelines, and recommendations to your team on the ground. Our independence from suppliers, vendors, and contractors gives you various pathways and options in bringing green building expertise into your projects. We can usually offer you a multi-level proposal for levels of service with a firm cost option.

  • Education and Training for Staff and Workforce: A 30-year veteran in documentation and technical training development, with broad experience in standards-based fields of construction, aerospace, software, contracts, and quality, our president, Maribeth Yarnell is accustomed to getting workforce and management up-to-speed in arenas required to keep safety, quality, and profits high. Maribeth has added the sustainability knowledge base with LEED® Green Building studies to her skill-set. As a LEED Green AssociateTM, with significant expertise in green thought as it relates to profitable business practices, Maribeth can help you strengthen your business plan with sustainability-based projects and resources. In terms of facilities management, office practice, and production control, waste management, as well as construction and remodeling related planning, we are ready to support your operations.

So, you are interested in sustainability in the built environment, or green building?
and you want to know more about what all the excitement is about? The biggest impact is coming from LEED®, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, a product of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). usgbc.org

LEED is today the grandmother of green building standards in the U.S. and Canada, and gaining acceptance all over the world. By no means a standard developed in a vacuum, LEED utilizes qualifying tools developed by many others, including: the HVAC&R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Regrigeration) standards of ASHRAE, the Portfolio Manager of the EPA's EnergyStar®, and many of the California and Washington State guidelines for green buildings in construction, remodeling, retrofitting, operations, and maintenance. A building can become LEED Certified, LEED Silver Certified, LEED Gold Certified, or LEED Platinum Certified. [PLEASE, try not to say 'LEEDS,' a temptation due to the name of cities, and knowing that multiple requirements must be met?] LEED is an acronym for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. A person can become credentialed in LEED requirements: an Accredited Professional in the LEED building arena, or a LEED Green Associate, to promote LEED standards in the built environment and community. As a LEED AP you can focus your expertise on any of a variety of specialties: Existing Buildings: Operations and Maintenance; New Construction; Commercial Interiors; Homes; Neighborhood Development; Schools, Health and Retail Spaces.

There are some really well-done online introductions, tutorials, and webinars for those who would like to get a taste of the green, without getting too bogged down in all the strict details at the outset. We have listed some fun and interesting links here. Many of the observable applications for LEED criteria carry across various specialty areas, so don't hesitate to enjoy a micro-course on schools, when you are really interested in Commercial Interiors.

You will notice that universities and states as well as the EPA are making educational contributions to these opportunitites for Americans to learn about green building (verb) and green buildings (noun). These resources can be a real asset if you need to check it out when you can't sleep at 2am, or while you're waiting for a flight.

Many of these learning tools are not too deep, but grasp the vocabulary, because in the long run, many words have critically special meaning in this brave new world of Green Standards.

Other Green Standards that you may run into include:
  • Green Globes delivers an online assessment protocol, rating system and guidance for green building design, operation and management.
  • International Green Construction Code (IGCC)
  • International Initiative for a Sustainable Built Environment
  • Energy Star
  • ICC-700 (NGBS) National Green Building Standard: NAHB developed; ANSI approved; ICC issued.
    ANSI (American National Standards Inst) approved National Green Building Standard from the International Code Council (ICC)
  • ICC-700 Overview/Guidelines from NAHB (National Association of Homebuilders.
  • Green SealScience based product standards and certifications: A 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, Green Seal issued its first environmental standards in 1991-2, and the first product certifications were completed in 1992.
  • Green Label and Green Label Plus standards from the Carpet and Rug Institute support green building standards.for indoor air quality. Green Label and Green Label Plus ensure that customers are purchasing among the lowest emitting carpet, adhesive and cushion products on the market.
