Who we are.

ReVireo provides analysis, consulting, and verification services to help clients determine and achieve target levels of energy efficiency and sustainability for building projects throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

We were founded in 2009 by two lifelong friends and outdoor enthusiasts who sought to reduce the impact of the built environment on the natural environment. Their mission, to enable clients to generate a return on investment in the energy efficiency and sustainability of buildings, remains our mission today.

Our friendly, attentive, and reliable team of building experts includes HERS Raters, DOE ZERH Verifiers, PHIUS+ Raters & Verifiers, NGBS Green Verifiers, LEED Accredited Professionals & Green Raters, Certified Energy Managers, Existing Building Commissioning Professionals, and Professional Engineers.
