- Missouri Energy Performance Contract
Burns & McDonnell was selected to provide comprehensive program analysis and energy performance contracting services at 12 sites encompassing more than 2 million square feet. Burns & McDonnell’s team of engineering professionals assessed each facility’s operational characteristics and provided upgrade and improvement recommendations. Construction began in February 2008 with the fast-tracking of the 450-ton chiller plant replacement at Northwest Missouri Psych Rehab to defer costly summertime maintenance.
In addition to energy and water conservation programs, the project included facility upgrades such as roof replacement and insulation programs. Burns & McDonnell’s professional staff provided all engineering and architectural design, construction management and measurement and verification services.
