Gaia’s founder, Ryan McEvoy, acted as the development and sustainability coordinator for the nation’s first LEED speculative commercial project, the Tricom Building. Upon completion of Tricom in 2003, McEvoy founded Gaia to provide developers with a one-stop-shop for an integrated approach to green building and sustainability. Today, our team offers a unique combination of technical expertise and professional versatility to assist our clients in reaching their goals and creating a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Gaia is a mission-based organization promoting sustainability through our project portfolio, our educational opportunities, and our community outreach. We believe that sustainable living and design are moral imperatives that shape our professional beliefs.
