Associate and Project Manager, James Roseberry has been Trivers’ liaison with the City of St. Louis’ Building Energy Performance Standards (BEPS) Ordinance which became law in 2020. The City of St. Louis BEPS Ordinance requires building owners to invest in energy efficiency improvements on qualifying buildings in 4-year cycles that meet EUI targets established by existing benchmarks. James is working to understand how this new ordinance will impact Trivers’ past, current, and future clients.

We also started traveling again to visit some of our project sites. Amy Gilbertson, Amanda McAllister, and Hallie Nolan traveled to Providence, RI to perform in-person research and field work on both the Pastore and Providence Federal Buildings. Carmen Chee, Aaron Church, Ashley James, and Amanda McAllister traveled to Indianapolis, IN to continue Trivers’ ongoing work at the MGEJ Bean Federal Center. It’s good to be back on the road visiting our out-of-state projects!
