Project Details:

LEED for Homes midrise adaptive reuse of a 9-story historic registered hotel and two new LEED for Homes apartment buildings affordable housing project. The hotel includes 31 rental lofts and 8,000 SF of commercial space and the two new buildings have a total of 28 dwelling units

Included in Green Insight’s scope of work were LEED for Homes credit verification, testing during construction and QAD review, energy efficiency recommendations, building material assessments, review of construction documents, specifications, and review of project submittals.


The hotel was slated for demolition when Tierra Realty Trust acquired the development rights. Numerous developers had looked to redevelop the project over many years. The environmental degradation from pigeon and time coupled with the building being historically registered made this a very challenging project. Envelope infiltration and meeting ASHRAE 62.2 was very difficult because the envelope could not be modified due to the historic registration.


Added interior closed-cell insulation into inside furring of the envelope, trickle vents for unit ventilation cut into windows, whole-building ventilation system plumbed through the roof, nano gel added to plaster in the historic ballroom to achieve required insulation levels. 35 kW photovoltaic system put onto new buildings roof to power the hotel common spaces and the new buildings. 80% of the units in the new buildings have a passive solar orientation.

  • NM Sustainable Building Tax Credit of $525,825.00
  • Historic Preservation Tax Credit of $118,248.00
  • Successful adaptive reuse of a circa 1929 Historic Hotel into a LEED Platinum Affordable Housing project

“Green Insight’s team is responsive, available, and provides a tremendous sense of security. We recently had a project where the goalposts changed quickly and often during the approval process. We were able to get our project approved, but I honestly don’t know how that would have gone if we didn’t have the backup and knowledge that Green Insight provided.”

Chris Beabout
Director of Development, Landmark Homes

“When it comes to green energy consultants, Green Insight takes the stress away like no other. They bring an unbeatable combination of value-engineering, industry knowledge, and out-of-the-box creativity for solutions that work. What I value most about working with Green Insight is the relationship – which is more like a partnership that has been one of the key drivers in our success. They take the stress away. And frankly, this has been the best relationship that I’ve had with somebody in this business.”
