Commercial Services

Work with a trusted leader at the cutting edge of the industry.
At Lightly Treading we bring a unique perspective to the evaluation of commercial and multifamily buildings. Our comprehensive approach to evaluating commercial and multifamily spaces, using diagnostic equipment and building science, allows us to find complete, honest solutions for true whole-building performance enhancement.


Energy benchmarking is a rating system (through ENERGY STAR's Portfolio Manager tool), like miles per gallon, that allows us to make “apples to apples” comparisons amongst buildings. We also run preliminary diagnostics such as infrared scan visual inspections to reveal issues with insulation, lighting, HVAC controls, and more.

Benchmarking the energy performance of a buildings is the first step to understanding and reducing energy consumption because you can’t manage what you don’t measure.

For those of you who currently own commerical or multifamily buildings in Denver, the City and County of Denver are now requiring benchmarking of utility bills for buildings that are 25,000 square feet and larger by June 1, 2018.
