Architecture firms launch energy venture

September 26, 2009

Two Indianapolis companies, architectural and engineering firm Schmidt Associates Inc. and mechanical contractor Johnson Melloh Inc., have partnered to form a new venture.

Energy Solutions by JMS will promote energy-savings programs to school districts, libraries and units of local government throughout the state.

The company will offer certification for green programs such as LEED, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, analysis for renewable resources and alternative funding assistance, among other services.

School districts and local governments are struggling to find ways to finance building upgrades, the two say, as they deal with property tax caps and state legislation passed last year that puts big-ticket school construction projects to a referendum.
