Energy services engineering normally begins with an evaluation of an existing or proposed mechanical and electrical system as a whole, to develop alternative energy sources best suited for the client’s use. Our team, which includes engineers, commissioning agents, testing and balancing technicians, and energy modeling professionals, looks at the broad view of the overall campus operation.
Modeling is often used to evaluate these alternative sources. Energy conservation is a priority in design, with building system components and equipment evaluated on a life cycle cost basis. Mechanical and electrical system alternatives and specific system components are evaluated together to minimize operating cost, while considering alternative energy sources and costs.
Sustainable practices are critical for campus operations such as hospitals and higher education facilities. Developing environmentally friendly, energy and water efficient solutions is key for facilities seeking to achieve ASHE, Energy Star, LEED, and EUI goals.
