Are you operating buildings in Boston or Cambridge? The Building Energy Reporting and Disclosure Ordinance (BERDO) requires that buildings larger than 50,000 square feet disclose their energy usage to the public. RDK can help you benefit from this transparency by reducing your Energy Use Intensity (EUI) and improving your building's efficiency.

Check out BERDO's energy map and discover what your tenants and clients are already seeing.
