The nationally renowned energy management team from Terrus Real Estate Group has left to become Meidh Corporation. Meidh specializes in Energy Star® labeling and LEED® certification for commercial investment fund and Corporate office properties across the nation.
The Meidh team is best recognized in Des Moines for attaining LEED Existing Building Certification for the Meredith Headquarters. The Meredith Headquarter is currently the first and only LEED Certified existing building in the state of Iowa, but will likely be joined before the end of the year by another ongoing Meidh project: Principal’s 801 Grand building.
The Meidh team has seen revenues more than triple over a two year period where other commercial real estate segments have struggled. This growth is due to the team’s focus on helping building owners reduce facility costs by maximizing the performance of their existing systems through energy audits and optimized operations.
“Our team’s success rests in the fact that we are independent analysts,” says Chris Draper, Meidh CEO. “Our focus has been, and will remain, on saving our customers money while improving productivity. If it’s not cost effective, it’s not sustainable.”
By retaining the team’s contracts, Meidh will begin on a stable footing and continue towards the team’s plan of doubling staff within the next year. In addition to expanding the reach of its core business, Meidh plans to further develop its proprietary analysis tools through strategic partnerships and licensing agreements with independent start-ups.
In looking towards the future, Draper believes Meidh’s analytical approach to environmentalism will allow it to continue delivering true sustainability. “We’re a company that knows the value of green.”
