Your older facilities don't have to miss out on the efficiencies and savings that benefit new construction. We can help you improve your building systems' performance without investing in a new location by retro-commissioning your facility.
Retro-commissioning involves applying the commissioning process to an existing facility that was not previously commissioned. It encompasses evaluating, testing, adjusting and correcting building systems so that energy and resources are conserved, comfort is improved, productivity is maximized, and operations and maintenance procedures are enhanced to meet all of the owner's current facility requirements.
Our commissioning team has optimized the building system performance and energy use of more than 23 million square feet of problematic building space through retro-commissioning. Our experience in the planning, design, construction and operation of a wide range of facilities means we have an integrated understanding of building systems and can help find the most significant and cost-effective improvement opportunities.
Utility Costs and Beyond
Retro-commissioning your building can save you from 11 cents to 72 cents per square foot in energy savings alone, with potential for an additional 10 cents to 45 cents per square foot from other sources. (Read the report from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.) That adds up quickly in a 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. The payback period for a retro-commissioning process can be as little as two and half years.
A retro-commissioned property also can add value beyond its efficiency measures. Buildings that have been retro-commissioned can be more comfortable and retain occupants better. They can also better support increased worker productivity.
