Featured Member: Dominion Due Diligence Group

Dominion Due Diligence Group (D3G) is headquartered in Richmond, Virginia. Celebrating 25 years in business, D3G was the original third-party due diligence consultant to concentrate on the HUD-FHA-MAP mortgage insurance industry and continues to navigate the nation’s most complex housing projects. D3G guides Lenders, Borrowers, General Contractors, Design Professionals and Equity Partners through the due diligence process, shaping the affordable housing industry by presenting environmental, property and sustainability solutions. D3G’s multi-faceted real estate approach allows them to be more than just a consultant, they are a true housing preservation partner.

D3G’s Energy and Sustainability Team offers an extensive suite of services including; energy benchmarking, energy auditing, energy modeling, utility allowance calculation reporting and green building consulting and verification. In 2016, HUD launched the Green Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP) Reduction that offered Multifamily projects up to 40 basis point rate reduction for pursuing energy-efficient design and green building certifications. D3G has provided green building consulting, verification and modeling services for over 100 projects that have pursued this incentive. For existing buildings, D3G can provide energy benchmarking and ENERGY STAR Certification services. For remodels and new construction, D3G has National Green Building Standards (NGBS) verifiers who can help projects cost-effectively qualify for the incentive. D3G also specializes in working with existing projects to determine the most cost-effective renovation work scopes that will improve a property’s performance to a level that qualifies for targeted financial incentives. This Advanced Energy Study is a comprehensive report that measures current performance and offers project specific improvements where the property needs it most.
