LEED®


Pratus Group

Sustainability is the future of our built environment but often it can be made to be over complicated, expensive, and onerous to integrate into projects of all scales. Most project management and consulting firms only add to this complexity by being large and arms length in their delivery style, all the while adding significant costs to a project's bottom-line. The result of which can be a less than ideal experience for clients, and at times, a less than successful project. At Pratus Group, we know it doesn’t have to be this way.

Drawing on nearly 20 years of combined experience leading projects in the healthcare, transit, commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential sectors we guide our clients to achieve their goals through unparalleled service, project leadership, and hands-on attention to detail. Our approach is one that focuses on customization for each client and each project, no matter the size.

We are committed to delivering projects on time and on budget, every time.

Our passion is our drive, and we think our service delivery is one that you will find refreshing.
