Portfolio Summary: Whole Building Data by Reporting Period

Better Buildings Challenge partners strive to report whole-building data for all properties within their portfolio. Often, Multifamily partners face the added challenge of collecting data from tenant-paid utility accounts. The Better Buildings Challenge is working with Multifamily partners and utility companies to improve the data collection and reporting process. While this important work continues, Multifamily partners are being recognized for their successes within those properties that are reporting whole-building data. BRIDGE Housing's reporting portfolio consists of 108 properties and 11.9 million square feet. For the 2018 reporting period, Bridge reported whole-building data for 65% of its portfolio.

BRIDGE Housing Corporation

Better Buildings Challenge Partners strive to decrease portfolio-wide source energy use intensity (EUI) and to increase the percent improvement compared to a set baseline. Bridge uses a unique engineered 2010 baseline developed for the SAHF Big Reach energy efficiency initiative and approved by the BBC. The BRIDGE Housing portfolio consists of more than 108 buildings and 11.9 million square feet. BRIDGE has improved energy performance by 47% from a 2010 baseline, progressing towards a full portfolio goal of 20% by 2023.  Energy savings have been achieved by implementing lighting and water retrofits and HVAC upgrades at several properties utilizing BayREN and SoCalREN incentives.
