Gail Hampsmire

Technical Director - Energy/HVAC Team

Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI)


Gail has a strong background in energy efficiency including
energy efficiency consulting, energy modeling, sustainable design consulting, energy auditing, and support for utility energy efficiency incentive programs. She provided analysis and consulting for over 100 LEED projects ranging from small LEED Platinum educational centers to large 15 million square foot multi-use developments.

In her role at GBCI, Gail works closely with customers and GBCI reviewers to facilitate a LEED review process that maintains the integrity of the LEED Rating system, and continuously improves upon the customer service and streamlines or simplifies documentation requirements. Gail works closely with team members from the USGBC and LEED project teams to develop alternative compliance paths for projects that are considered "square peg / round hole" scenarios within the current LEED Rating system. Many of these solutions have been approved as LEED Interpretations or Pilot Alternative Compliance Paths.
