Her entrepreneurial passion was the impetus for creating AUROS360, as she recognized the opportunity to use technology to provide building owners a pathway for confidently investing in sustainability strategies.  AUROS360 is the first system of its kind to use technology to balance sustainability goals with first costs and long-term operating costs.
Beth is co-author of the upcoming book, The Power of Existing Buildings—Save Money, Improve Health and Reduce Environmental Impacts.  The holistic nature of AUROS360 exposed a need in the construction industry to find cost effective ways of making old buildings perform like new.  Building owners and developers currently invest in existing buildings primarily to fix what is broken or at lifecycle.  AUROS360 provides a map that optimizes investments in existing buildings to cost effectively achieve the highest performance possible in terms of energy consumption and occupant health and productivity.  The new book provides a step by step approach for owners looking to meet the ever-increasing demands of governments, tenants and building occupants on existing building performance.  Beth is frequently asked to speak on disruptive innovation and evidence-based performance.
