Financial and Environmental Impact Analysis of Sustainable Retrofitting
The case puts students in the position of a young analyst working for a Chicago-based student housing developer. The premise is that the analyst, Tricia, must prepare a report for the firm's partners detailing her recommendations regarding a variety of green upgrades for a potential value-added acquisition project.

The case focuses solely on the operating expense reduction that took place at the property and does not address potential changes to property revenues.
