EBS Welcomes Warren Neilson, Sustainability Consultant, to the EBS Team!
Warren Neilson – hard at work and dominating on the EBS basketball hoop!
EBS is very excited to welcome our newest Sustainability Consultant, Warren Neilson. Warren has worked with several Sustainability-focused organizations, including the World Green Building Council, the U.S. Green Building Council, the Green Building Council of Australia, and the Berkshire Encyclopedia of Sustainability. His extensive green building affiliations encompass both American and International organizations, serving as a LEED Green Associate for USGBC’s LEED rating system, a GreenPoint rater and a Certified Green Building Professional for Build It Green’s Greenpoint Rating System, and a GreenStar AP for the Green Building Council of Australia, for which he has managed over 70 GreenStar projects throughout the country.
Warren became interested in the green building movement as an undergraduate at Louisiana State University, where he obtained a B.S. in Construction Management. He continued to pursue his passion for sustainable construction by achieving a Master’s Degree in Sustainable Development from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, where he focused on building information modeling, passive building design strategies, and sustainable business management practices.
Through his education and comprehensive experience in the field, Warren recognizes the vast potential in creating buildings that become resource providers, and feels a calling to create innovative solutions that provide social equity, environmental regeneration, and economic value to the built environment. He currently resides in the San Francisco Bay Area and manages several LEED projects for EBS—many of which are expected to achieve a Platinum Rating. He also serves as a visiting professor for Devry University’s Sustainability Management Program.
Warren’s ambitious and successful career integrates seamlessly with the EBS goal to optimize the value of sustainability. He firmly believes that our planet’s cities are the solution to some of the greatest social, environmental and economic dilemmas we face today.
“I’m excited and honored to work with a company that is developing sustainable solutions in the built environment. It is our generation that will make a difference, and working with like-minded sustainability professionals at EBS enables me to start making that difference today.”
