Green Physical Needs Assessments (GPNA), developed by the U.S. Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUD), combine the requirements of a traditional PNA with a thorough evaluation of the property's sustainability performance from a whole-building perspective. This informs stakeholders of the most lucrative upgrade opportunities, and aids in formulating budgets and applying for project financing or grants.
Junto manages all phases of assessment, design and implementation of the GPNA framework, which includes conducting energy and water audits, on-site renewable energy and waste water management feasibility studies, retrofit and ROI modeling, long-term capital needs planning, and Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) and Operations & Maintenance (O&M) review.
Junto works with Public Housing Authority properties (PHAs) and non-PHAs of all sizes to tailor-craft GPNA scopes which best fit their needs and budgets. A number of our team members have been trained to utilize HUD's GPNA tool, and we have experience using it with an impressive portfolio of publically assisted housing complexes.
