As one of our long-term university clients continues to dive deep pursuing energy savings on their California campus, we’re supporting the forward thinking institution with full project implementation of energy retrofits including this DDC controls upgrade at their outdoor pool and recreation center.


The project involved full design-build specifications for a complete JCI MetaSys controls upgrade and numerous equipment and controls measures, listed below.


We managed the project on our client’s behalf, working with Johnson Controls from bid proposal through commissioning. We also provided M&V on the project.
