Sustainable and Healthy Buildings Practice Lead
Lauren Fakhoury leads Brightworks’ Sustainable and Healthy Buildings Practice with more than 11 years of experience in green building consulting. She regularly guides project teams to achieve advanced sustainability goals and distinguish themselves in the competitive landscape of Bay Area real estate. Within Brightworks, she leads sales efforts, complex client projects, and helps develop our internal staff and sustainability best practices.
Lauren is particularly experienced with green building programs for core and shell developments, including for prolific Bay Area real estate developer Sobrato. She frequently manages aggressive sustainability programs for technology companies, such as office tenant improvement programs for LinkedIn, HPE, Google, and others.

Before Brightworks, Lauren was a senior analyst in Accenture’s San Jose office, focused on business and systems integration, energy, and smart buildings.
