THE PATH TO PEAK PERFORMANCE

As a full-service, single-source provider, we combine building analytics, engineering analysis, construction expertise and hands-on technician support to put your facility on the path to improved performance. Here’s how we do it:


ANALYZE

Enhance our understanding of your educational facility and your unique operational needs by:

  • Identifying system deficiencies.
  • Performing on-site analysis.
  • Running simulation models to show actual versus optimal performance.
  • Identifying specific areas that have the potential to cause problems to help reduce O&M repairs over time.

The result? Increased insight into the operational deficiencies that are driving poor performance for your facility as well as the savings in utility costs that you could realize through operational improvements and optimization.

PLAN

Create your customized plan for facility performance improvements and increased savings by:

  • Building contingency into projects to address system deficiencies.
  • Developing long- and short-term capital plans and determining project financing—including the paid-through-energy-savings option with support from our ESCO partners.

The result? Your roadmap to success, including multiple options for a capital project plan with targeted cost per square foot that will make the greatest impact on your facility’s performance and asset value.

IMPROVE

Call on our extensive experience and resources to deliver proactive, innovative services and provide real value for your bottom line by:

  • Optimizing current performance for quick returns.
  • Implementing capital projects either at once or phased over time.
  • Providing ongoing progress reports.
