Mr. Sheehy started Envision Realty Services in 2007 as he felt there was a growing and unmet demand for properties that are built or retrofitted to be resource-efficient, that are equipped with advanced energy-saving technologies and that have policies and programs in place to achieve LEED Certification from the U.S. Green Building Council.
Craig was responsible for the implementation of Thomas Properties Group $500,000,000 national Green Building Fund and he has been traveling North America promoting his environmental project, Greening Your Building Toward the Bottom Line. Craig's first building, the Joe Serna Jr. - Cal/EPA Headquarters Building in Sacramento, CA, was recognized as one of the most energy efficient high-rises in the U.S. through Energy Star and was awarded the Platinum Certification through the U.S. Green Building Council's LEED-EB program. The building was also the 2004 winner of BOMA Internationals TOBY Earth Award.
Craig has become a sought-after speaker in the real estate industry, educating the industry on Green Development, Green Strategies and low and no cost operational efficiencies that can be incorporated into commercial buildings. Real-life, state-of-the-art green practices not only improve our impact on the environment, they also improve our net operating income.
Mr. Sheehy was appointed Vice-Chair of Governor Schwarzenegger's Real Estate Industry Leadership Council where his role is incentivizing the private Real Estate sector into incorporating energy efficiency and green buildings into their projects. Craig is chair of the Steering Committee for the California Sustainability Alliance and an Advisory Board Member of Eco-Zone. He is Immediate Past President of BOMA International's Pacific Southwest Region and immediate Past Chair of the BOMA Energy Efficiency Program (BEEP).
Mr. Sheehy graduated from San Diego State University with a Bachelors Degree in Public Administration.
