Earthly Ideas LLC is dedicated to supporting project teams with the information, resources, and skills needed to produce high performance facilities. Through our efforts, we hope to redirect development towards environmental stewardship and sustainability.

Established in 1992, we are a respected green building consulting firm. Building owners, developers, design firms, and construction managers hire Earthly Ideas LLC to influence the design, renovation, construction, and operation of commercial, institutional, and industrial buildings.

To guide our clients, we apply our technical knowledge of the sustainable development field to cooperatively identify the most beneficial opportunities. We then utilize our exceptional organizational skills and project management competencies of facilitation, effective communication, thorough research, and meticulous attention to detail to help teams plan and implement sustainable solutions including LEED® criteria. We have experience in a diversity of building types; for our portfolio of selected projects, please visit

Our Managing Principal, Michelle Reott, has successfully assisted over seven dozen sustainability projects/clients nationwide including thirty buildings that have achieved or are seeking LEED certification. Clients have said she “is the best at LEED consulting we’ve ever worked with,” “is detailed, thorough, and accurate,” and “exceeded their expectations.” In 2016, Green Business Certification Inc. recognized this excellence by designating Earthly Ideas as a LEED® Proven Provider™ for the Building Design and Construction rating system family.
