Building Audits

Building Audits

Building audits help determine:

  • how you are using your building,
  • how to maximize its use,
  • how to be more sustainable and energy-efficient, and
  • how to overcome the obstacles that the architecture defines.

The Regeneration Audit will help faith communities who may be under considerable financial or community pressure to restructure, amalgamate, etc. This walk-through audit acts as an outside set of eyes and viewpoint to ensure the best consensus decisions can be made moving forward for all involved. Bringing a triple-bottom-line sustainability perspective (environmental, social, financial), this audit will help participants evaluate issues such as building, operations, energy, historical concerns, community activity within and beyond the walls, and how to engage the community to strengthen the sustainability goals moving forward. Natural Resources Canada (NRCan)’s Energy Star Portfolio Manager* is used in this walk-through audit as a means to compare buildings in question.  Discounts will apply if you would like this audit to encompass more than one faith community.

By working with our team of professionals during your faith community’s time of need, we will guide you with the best unbiased information possible, to help you make the best decision for the future of your community and beyond. The Regeneration Audit can be delivered by itself or as part of a comprehensive consultation with your faith community.
