Nick Rubenstein, LEED AP,
Nick uses data driven models and owner experience to find solutions that balance building efficiency and performance. As evolveEA’s building rating systems manager, Nick’s background in building operations and maintenance allows him to optimize functionality while ensuring that sustainability remains a priority in the design and operation of our built environment. Nick is currently consulting on a number of LEED certifications for healthcare facilities, commercial interiors, and other new construction projects. Before joining evolve, he managed sustainable building design and operations projects as part of Phipps Conservatory’s team of green building and landscape professionals.
Nick serves on the Green Building Alliance’s Emerging Professionals committee and helps coordinate education sessions that serve as a foundation for high-level sustainability courses. One of his favorite projects can be seen at the University of Pittsburgh, where his team won first place in the Sustainable Solutions Competition for the design and installation of Marlie Gardens, a native landscape that implements storm water mitigation techniques in the heart of Pitt’s urban campus. Nick earned his BA in Environmental Studies from the University of Pittsburgh, is a LEED Accredited Professional (BD+C), and a Fitwel Ambassador.
