Consultancy: Local Green Building Ordinance Expert (Philippines)

Our office in the Philippines is looking for an expert on local green building ordinances to implement activities that will spur the development of Santa Rosa City’s  Local Green Building Code.


The consultancy’s overall objective is to implement activities that will spur the development of Santa Rosa City’s  Local Green Building Code. This consultancy is not intended to result to the Code itself, but the activities are envisioned to shape the Local Green Building Code and other green building activities that Santa Rosa will implement. ICLEI SEAS through BEA will provide support for the completion of activities covered in this consultancy project.

Specifically, this consultancy project is intended to cover the following; however, the consultant is free to propose additional activities and their design but must be within the allotted budget and project duration:

  • Conduct an inventory of existing national and local policies and programs relative to green building and building efficiency;
  • Conduct a review of existing environmental guidelines and programs in relation to green building;
  • Conduct an analysis of current and projected building types in Santa Rosa City;
  • Capacitate the city of Santa Rosa to undertake entity-level building energy audit;
  • Conduct activities for the Santa Rosa City’s government personnel, officials, and/or building industry stakeholders to undertake entity-level building energy audit; and
  • Design and conduct at least two (2) stakeholder consultations, the outputs of which must contribute to developing Santa Rosa’s Local Green Building Code. The targeted stakeholders are building owners and/or managers. It will serve as a dialogue between the City Government of Santa Rosa and stakeholders who would most likely be affected with the implementation of the Green Building Code in the future.


Due to its urgency, the project must be completed within 01 November to 31 January 2020.
