Charlene Mendez

Senior Sustainability Analyst, HDR

With eleven years of experience, Charlene brings to the team collaboration and sustainability with early integrated and parametric analysis tools, allowing for sustainability measures to play a timely role in the design process. This includes a focus on the building facade and the health and wellness of occupants through analysis of daylight, glare, thermal comfort, and other metrics for interior environments. She further contributes to later project phases by implementing detailed environmental analyses, energy modeling, and verification with sustainable benchmarking certification. Charlene believes as sustainable specialists it is a priority to be educators to facilitate growth of sustainable and regenerative measures into professional practice and the greater community.
