Effective March 1, MaGrann Associates has acquired The Levy Partnership sustainability business, a New York City based sustainability consulting firm with recognized expertise in the burgeoning field of  beneficial electrification research and implementation.

​“I was thrilled to hear about the merger of The Levy Partnership and MaGrann Associates. We have had the privilege of working with both organizations and it is easy to see the synergies between them. This is clearly a case where the whole will be greater than the sum of its parts," said Mitchell Forlenza, Senior Vice President, Construction, AvalonBay Communities, Inc.

By joining with The Levy Partnership we can now offer a full range of turnkey building performance research, design, certification and implementation services in New York – a city and state fully committed to a carbon neutral future”

MaGrann has been improving the performance of buildings people live in for almost 40 years. The combination of  a mission driven approach and shared commitment to true partnership has proven value for new clients and keeps them coming back, project after project and for the life of their buildings. “We are in it for the long haul” says James Ball, MaGrann’s VP of Business Development, “In addition to deep technical support, customized solutions and free trainings, we strive for exceptional service because we want the companies we work with to thrive, grow and have meaningful impact on the quality of their resident experience.”

MaGrann is unique in offering services across all stages of a building’s development and operation, coupled with a comprehensive understanding of the programs and incentives available for financial and implementation support.  The Levy Partnership Founder, Emanuel Levy adds,
