Pioneering Leadership. Comprehensive Perspective.
High-performance, sustainable buildings don’t just happen by accident. They require careful planning and a global perspective to ensure projects are completed to the highest environmental, efficiency, quality, durability, and health standards available today.
Tadashi Shiga, owner and creator of Evergreen Certified LLC, possesses the knowledge, experience, and determination to help his clients achieve their sustainable building project goals. Born and raised in Seattle, WA, and a child of two successful developers, Tadashi has been involved in every facet of the real estate industry since 1991 – from sales to marketing to development to investment. As such, he understands how to examine a project from every angle in order to strategize for the successful completion of a project.
Tadashi goes beyond mere consultation and works to build systems that create lasting change, which is evident in his work as the pioneer behind the new Eco-Builders Group in the Pacific Northwest. By pulling together local subcontractors, vendors, manufacturers, and distributors, Tadashi has created a bulk-purchasing cooperative that provides lower-cost sustainable building products to small and mid-sized developers. This program will drive down green building costs in the region while helping to spur development in the green building industry.
With an interest in continual development, Tadashi stays current on all new green building techniques and strategies through regular training and certification. He possesses several advanced sustainable building credentials and affiliations:
- Certified HERS Rater
- Built Green Verifier
- Northwest ENERGY STAR Verifier
- US Department of Energy Builders Challenge Partner
- Real estate broker for Windermere Seattle-Eastlake
With a passion for helping people understand the tremendous benefits of sustainable designs, a knack for bringing together team members across the value chain, and as a recognized leader in the green building space, Tadashi is an asset for any green building project.
