Over time, building functionality decreases. Retro-commissioning minimizes energy expenditure and provides innovative solutions to lower operational and maintenance costs and reduce a building’s carbon footprint. As one of the highest-yielding returns on investment for existing properties, EBI Consulting’s mechanical and building controls experts work with you to address your project’s evolving needs.
Retro-Commissioning (RCx) identifies building systems problems and produces engineering solutions. Through the process of auditing, investigating, and system implementation and verification, EBI’s experienced Energy and Sustainability professionals are with you through every step. Well-versed in optimizing building components to improve energy efficiency and decrease energy use intensity, they help create a comfortable environment for occupants and reduce maintenance needs.
RCx provides financial benefits in addition to improved system reliability. Compared to other capital projects, RCx (or “tuning-up”) existing HVAC, electrical, and lighting control systems is more attractive, as it often provides a shorter payback period than replacing equipment or making system modifications.
Let EBI’s energy and sustainability professionals put your investment to work and optimize the efficiency of your building.
Emory University had an energy reduction goal to reduce their energy usage to 25% below their 2005 usage by the 2015 academic year.
Let our nationwide network of local experts find solutions that give you the information you need to make the best business decisions.
When it comes to energy efficiency, knowledge is power – especially with increasing regulations regarding carbon emissions and other climate challenges. Energy benchmarking, the process of assessing where your building’s energy efficiency falls in line with other buildings of similar size and purpose, gives property owners the ability to make improvements where necessary, find ways to reduce waste and costs, and improve overall property value.
It’s all too common to spend the first year occupying a building troubleshooting the various issues that arise, wasting time, energy, and money. Commissioning (Cx) can ensure a well-delivered building with lower operational and maintenance costs from day one.
Energy usage, sustainability, and resiliency are critical factors in a commercial real estate property’s performance, costs, and most importantly – investment value. EBI’s comprehensive approach to energy management ensures your goals are achieved on every project.
From ground up construction to retrofits and remodels, EBI’s Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing design and engineering team provide the turnkey services building owners need to operate efficiently.
