The Client Says:
The Stoneridge project enabled us to immediately free up cash which we used to invest in our strategic priorities. Elevant was a great partner in understanding our real needs, and we'd recommend them to anyone.
-Tyler Mattox, Principal, MCA Realty
California Commercial Real Estate Company Saves Thousands with LED Technology
MCA had limited visibility into their energy spend, the efficiency of their buildings, deferred maintenance across their portfolio, outdated system, and utility maintenance costs were increasing for unknown reasons. They turned to Elevant for help, looking for a solution with a better return rate than buying a new building. We were able to use artificial intelligence and analytics software to identify and pinpoint the internal rate of return (IRR) of various upgrades in their portfolio. The project saw rebates of over $35,000 and over $80,000 in tax incentives and saw payback within 1 year. They now save over $80,000 annually with an increased portfolio property value of over $1.3 million.

Innovative Use Cases: REIT
Reduce Your Costs
First things first. Elevant thrives where you feel the most pain: your operating expenses. Globally, lighting accounts for 19% of the world's energy consumption. In commercial buildings, 33% of usage is in lighting. This isn’t about reinventing the wheel—this is about diverting existing energy in a smarter way. After all, energy saved is energy generated.
Reimagine the Way Buildings Work
By connecting lighting, plugs, and thermostats to a network, every fixture and sensor combines to create a grid that continuously captures data on occupancy, temperature, sunlight—and shares that data with other connected systems like HVAC, security, and cameras. Your building becomes as smart as the people working within it.
As Easy as Flipping a Switch
Configuration changes to alter brightness, color, temperature, and more can be done with the push of a button and pushed to thousands of fixtures with a single tap. Fixture layout changes can happen anytime, without an electrician. Energy analysis, building analysis, health and performance reports, and other analytics are served up in a delightful dashboard which you can easily monitor—or, if you prefer, we can manage it for you.
Built for Tomorrow
From noise levels to air quality to the ability to detect gunshots, the rate of new value in building efficiency increases exponentially every year. This technology will solve problems that we don’t even know about yet, and you will be able to upgrade your building’s efficiency with the same ease as a software update.
Recession-Proof Your Business
We're entering an era of high and volatile resource prices. If you want to recession-proof your business, it's going to require a shift in institutional mindsets and mechanisms. We must treat the places in which we do business—our buildings—as a natural extension of the business itself. The most holistic, efficient way to cut costs, increase productivity, and gain the insight you need to keep thriving is through building intelligence. This is not about maintaining the status quo. It’s about constantly positioning you for growth, no matter what comes next.
Save Our Planet
According to the McKinsey sustainability report, the number one productivity initiative is building energy efficiency. Ultimately, our mission is to lead the world toward a more sustainable and efficient future. We believe the most successful business solutions are scalable, efficient, and fully integrate service platforms that work for the client—without taking away from the environment. There should never be a compromise between your company’s future and the future of our planet. Now, there doesn’t have to be.
