Seattle -- Green-building consulting firm Paladino and Co. said Wednesday it has acquired S.D. Keppler & Associates, a green consultancy out of Rockville, Md.
The two firms have joined to establish a comprehensive consulting offering focused on elevating the impact of green real estate programs within business.
The acquisition combines Paladino’s green building technical analysis leadership and real estate portfolio optimization expertise with S.D. Keppler’s strong signature building and advanced commissioning capabilities. The newly integrated offering serves as a platform for expansion of the firm’s increasing activity within corporate real estate divisions and the building development community, as it helps portfolio owners derive business value from built assets and evolve towards more sustainable business models and practices in general.
Paladino will retain its headquarters office in Seattle under the direction of Tom Paladino, who will now serve as CEO. Steve Keppler has been appointed president, reporting to Tom Paladino, and will manage the D.C. office and other East Coast regional business.
