The New York State Energy Research and Development Agency (NYSERDA) recently announced ARA Construction as their latest partner under the existing buildings performance program.

ARA’s experience and expertise in building performance measurement and upgrading has propelled it into a select group of contractors who have met the rigorous standards of the NYSERDA partnership program. ARA will now offer its services to building owners and managers who are looking to reduce energy consumption and take advantage of the generous grants and financing opportunities provided by NYSERDA.

ARA’s main advantage over other firms in the program is its ability to undertake all elements of a renovation project from start to finish. ARA are noted as one of the most “hands on” partners in the program. Specializing in fenestration projects (windows, doors, storefronts), ARA have experience in substantial renovations to landmarked buildings.

ARA started out with a goal of reducing energy consumption on their construction projects at every possibly opportunity. We are delighted that NYSERDA have recognized this commitment and were eager to partner with us in delivering an important opportunity to the New York State real estate industry.
