Granite Properties, a renowned real estate investment and property management company with over 20 million square feet across the U.S., sought the help of Quest to reduce operating expenses and create a programs designed to track facility management program effectiveness in order to ensure property managers could spend more time focusing on core tasks.
Quest implemented a GAP analysis and designed a detailed road map to increase diversion rates and maximize savings. Quest then implemented a property-wide landfill diversion program that helped tenants easily recycle their waste streams and renegotiated both the trash and the recycling rates with local haulers on the clients behalf. Finally, Quest tracked the programs’ Key Performance Indicators and delivered customized reports to the client, every month, via its easy to use portal.
Quest helped Granite save 30% the first year and 53% the second year. The recycling programs secured a 55% landfill diversion rate, which helped save over 900 metric tons of CO2.
“We have been so happy to partner with Quest in the creation of the waste / recycling program for our Dallas real estate portfolio. We have been especially impressed with our waste Dashboard where we are able to track costs and diversion rates for the whole portfolio.
Sandra and Skye have been incredibly proactive and always bring new ideas and suggestions to our team. We have a commitment to sustainability at our company but our teams are incredibly busy. Our partnership with Quest has allowed us to work toward our sustainability goals in a very effective, efficient way… by having the experts working on our behalf!”
