February 2021: Dominion Due Diligence Group

Dominion Due Diligence Group (D3G) is the nation’s leading full service environmental, engineering, and energy due diligence firm. They are committed to navigating the most complex affordable housing challenges. Offering all core services in-house, their team of experts deliver a streamlined experience that includes a comprehensive set of Green and Energy services. With roots in sustainability since their founding in 1994, their nationwide reach and thorough understanding of green financing and requirements have allowed them to effectively guide clients toward the best and most cost-effective solutions.



D3G’s Energy and Sustainability team is ready to assist with energy benchmarking, auditing, and modeling assessments. Their staff is knowledgeable about how these disciplines fit within the complex world of green financing programs and the energy services that are necessary to ensure compliance with HUD, Fannie and Freddie, and LIHTC protocols. Trained auditors, modelers, and green building consultants can help navigate a completive tax credit application, green financing through HUD, or any energy and green-related programs.



Coronavirus has impacted the housing industry on an enormous scale – for both housing professionals and residents alike. Despite a challenging 2020, D3G’s Energy and Sustainability team quickly adapted to new protocols, inspection processes, and travel restrictions. Given these difficult circumstances and the ever-changing landscape, they were undeterred. D3G’s tireless team efforts consistently produced high quality, comprehensive reports that met clients’ needs and kept projects moving forward while remaining diligent to health and safety procedures.

The Energy & Sustainability team wrapped up a strong year with some well-deserved and notable accomplishments:

  • More than 120 Multifamily Properties – greater than 25,000 units – were certified to the ENERGY STAR standard.
  • Over 250 Multifamily Developers and Property Owners have pursued HUD’s green financing program through consultation provided by D3G.
  • D3G generated over 600 whole building energy simulation models for a wide variety of residential multifamily buildings, consisting of over 10,700 dwelling units. Collectively, since the inception of HUDs Green MIP program five years ago, D3G has generated over 2,5000 whole building energy simulations for buildings consisting of over 46,000 units.
  • D3G was selected as a 2019 NGBS Green Partner of Excellence for the third consecutive year in a row.
