"D3G was with us every step of the way.  The Green MIP program was new for everyone involved but D3G’s team explained the program requirements and helped us meet all the requirements cost-effectively. Throughout the green verification process, they were onsite answering questions and helping to ensure that we secured the NGBS Green Certification with no surprises.”  

-  Ryan Bedford, EVP of Developments at Bedford Development
