OUR APPROACH

RIGHT FIT

To ensure your building is a good RCx candidate before beginning work, we qualify it using a quick walk-through, utility data, BAS review and stakeholder interviews.

REMOTE HEADSTART

We do our homework to understand your building before stepping on-site reviewing real building data from the BMS, mechanical documents, and control sequences.

CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

We spend time on site developing measures and specific scopes of work for custom solutions and control sequences tailored to your building and its control capabilities.

CUSTOMER FOCUSED

We incorporate site staff feedback early and ensure recommendations match your operational and economic priorities. Throughout implementation, we are available to answer technical questions and make sure the job gets done right.

DETAILED COSTS

Getting the implementers involved early ensures our cost estimates are accurate and include site specific accommodations such as design fees, commissioning fees, and temporary services when needed.

VERIFY SAVINGS

Use post-implementation data to ensure that the savings appear on the bottom line. We share our findings with staff to ensure that they understand how to maintain savings over time.
