WASHINGTON, DC — Autocase has named three Ambassadors, recognized as thought leaders in the areas of urban planning and design, architecture and construction, to help spearhead its new Ambassador Program, bringing Autocase to new markets and enabling designers across the globe to make a convincing business case for green buildings and infrastructure investments.
Founded in 2012, Autocase’s mission is to equip architects, engineers, contractors and owners with the tools to cost-effectively assess the economic impact of sustainable design. Through cloud-based software, Autocase automates Triple Bottom Line Cost Benefit Analysis (TBL-CBA), providing the data necessary to justify a higher standard of care in our building and infrastructure design.
The following Ambassadors were named to the inaugural collaborators:
David MacLean, President of McMac Cx in Houston, Texas. Mr. MacLean has over 25 years of experience deploying analytics, technologies and outcome verification solutions, producing above minimum code projects that are healthy, efficient and productive places for our community to live, learn, work and play.
Leith ter Meulen, Founder of New York based Landair, a project development and management group that works with clients like the Governor’s Office of Storm Recovery, the Empire State Development Corporation, the GSA and the National Parks Service on high profile, impactful projects that transform neighborhoods.
Mikel Wilkins, Founder and Principal of URBAN ECOPLAN in Dallas, Texas. Mr. Wilkins is an environmental engineer with more than 23 years of professional experience. He founded URBAN ECOPLAN to offer scalable green infrastructure education, planning, and concept development services to public and private entities.
“Our new Ambassadors were early adopters of Autocase and immediately saw how our software can help designers communicate the business case for sustainable projects so that its clear to stakeholders,” said Jonathon Spitz, Vice President Sales & Business Development at Autocase.
“They understand why Autocase should be part of a designer’s work process and will help us build a community of advisors and users we expand across North America.”
In the coming months, Autocase will add additional Ambassadors in major markets to the program.
Autocase was created to automate triple bottom line cost-benefit analysis (TBL-CBA) so that the Financial, Social, and Environmental value of infrastructure and buildings projects can be
incorporated into the design process. Built to run throughout the design and construction process, Autocase estimates capital and operating costs, grey infrastructure costs, the value of natural capital, and other social and environmental benefits associated with designs.
