Welcome to FirstView

Thank you for using the FirstView™ web tool. We hope you find the tool intuitive and useful. We look forward to hearing your feedback. We are available to respond to any inquiries or issues, so don’t hesitate to contact us at firstview@newbuildings.org

Before beginning, here are some basic instructions:

  • Login at left.
  • Submit building data on the Overview, Details and Usage Data pages.
  • View the FirstView tool analysis on the Results page.
  • Create FirstView tool reports on the Results page. Access saved reports by first selecting the building on the My Buildings page. You can return to this website and login to retrieve previous reports.

This web tool was created specifically for office buildings. Therefore diagnostic thresholds and peer comparisons in the analysis and on the reports are exclusive to office buildings. If you are working on another building type, please contact NBI to discuss additional FirstView services directly at firstview@newbuildings.org

NBI developed the FirstView tool and suite of services with support from a variety of sources and sponsors including: US Environmental Protection Agency, USGBC, California Energy Commission’s Public Interest Energy Research (PIER) Program, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Kresge Foundation.
