We work with clients who value the cost-effective, practical solutions that JDM provides to reduce the environmental impact of their real estate portfolios. Embedded in JDM’s culture is the belief that although we work on buildings and energy efficiency challenges, we work with people. We are deeply invested in our relationships, both with our internal teams, and with our external clients and other stakeholders.
