Here are some common topics to get you started.
Uncovering the specific drivers of your building’s energy usage, and how it stacks up with others, is often the first step in making strategic, cost-effective energy upgrades that help you reduce energy waste, lower costs and stay competitive.
When you can learn to operate your building more efficiently through energy-efficient maintenance practices and equipment troubleshooting, you’ll lower costs, improve comfort and further differentiate yourself in the market.
Strategic Energy Management
Strategic Energy Management (SEM) helps you embed long-term energy-saving practices into the key areas of your building operations: people, manufacturing systems, measurement, and organizational structure.
By learning how every aspect of your building works together, you’ll be able to incorporate holistic efficiency into your next commercial project to save you or your client energy, time and money.

Dedicated outside air systems (DOAS) apply the concept of separating heating and cooling from the ventilation system, which allows for optimal control of each of these critical building functions. A very high efficiency DOAS (also referred to as VHE DOAS) improves this concept by focusing on efficiency and pairing a high-performance heating and cooling system, such as a heat pump or VRF, with a very high efficiency heat recovery ventilator (HRV) or energy recovery ventilator (ERV).
Seattle’s Pacific Tower was an iconic building with a big facility maintenance challenge: its older systems were inefficient and falling short in meeting occupants’ expectations. After the Washington Department of Commerce signed a 30-year lease to take over Pacific Tower, the team wanted to implement bold system upgrades and energy conservation measures to bring the building into the modern era and provide a better lighting experience for occupants.
