Utilizing HOA Management as a tool for sustainability, saving your community natural and financial resources.
The built environment – the human made world in which people live, work, and play – is changing. Buildings are being retrofitted for efficiency. Landscapes are being redesigned to grow climate adapted plants. Water is being used more responsibly inside and outside of our homes. And cities are becoming more connected through bike paths and greenways.
With the Denver Metropolitan Area projected to grow by 1.3 million people in the coming decades, sustainability matters more now than ever before.
At CAP Management, we believe HOA management has an opportunity to become a part of the sustainability solution.
We are prepared to work with your community on neighborhood-scale sustainability initiatives in the following areas:

Potable water is an extremely valuable resource in Colorado. With the forecasted population growth, utility rates will continue to increase to meet a growing demand. The good news is that many Colorado Water Providers are also incentivizing conservation, making water efficiency projects available and affordable.
Some of the easiest water savings on your property can be achieved by simply replacing older plumbing fixtures (like toilets and shower heads) with high-efficiency models. Indoor plumbing retrofits are especially effective for older properties with outdated plumbing fixtures. Previously, CAP Management has helped several of its HOAs achieve significant water and utility cost savings by implementing toilet replacement projects with funding assistance provided by Denver Water.
As inefficient indoor plumbing fixtures become obsolete, water used for landscape irrigation becomes priority. In Colorado, it is estimated that up to 50% of all potable water is used for landscape irrigation! We will help your community optimize its outdoor water usage by evaluating and prioritizing efficiency upgrades for your irrigation system. Our expert recommendations might include installation of smart controllers, rain sensors, or high efficiency sprinkler head replacement.

We will help with that too! We’ll work with your landscape provider and all necessary stakeholders to enhance your community’s water stewardship.
The way in which a building consumes and uses energy is a direct indicator of its carbon footprint and environmental impact. New or old, any building has some opportunity for energy efficiency improvements. These may be simple changes like upgrading to LED light bulbs, or more complex, like enhancing your building’s weatherization details.
At any scale, CAP Management is prepared to facilitate your property’s energy initiatives. By coordinating a comprehensive energy audit, we will help your residents and HOA Board make informed decisions regarding energy and efficiency upgrades.
The way your HOA manages waste, including recycling and waste removal has a huge difference on both the comfort and environment your home owners are living in and the future of the larger environment. Work with our sustainability experts to find a solution that works for your HOA.
What are the benefits to your HOA and beyond?
Energy and water efficiency projects should be thought of as community-wide sustainability investments- investments that will help your association achieve significant utility savings each month. With assisted financing from water and energy providers, the payback period of these upgrades can be almost immediate.
By working with the Sustainability Department at CAP Management, you can trust that your community will always be notified of the latest sustainability opportunity- be it a free irrigation audit, a suite of conservation rebates, or a grant matching application. Our Chief Sustainability Officer will provide expert sustainability strategy, project management, and implementation. Your community can trust CAP Management to make sustainability easy!
