We take a comprehensive, whole-building (interior and exterior) approach to support the energy-efficiency needs of a broad range of government buildings, community facilities, and public infrastructure. In each case, we take advantage of opportunities to improve the performance of diverse applications and system components and the way those components are controlled and maintained.
In particular, our team does the following:
- Designs and builds systems that reduce energy, water consumption, and costs
- Improves the efficiency of lighting, water, and building envelope performance and occupant comfort
- Works flexible shifts and wears easily identifiable company uniforms and badges
- Completes flexible, professional design-build efforts with minimal disruption to occupants
Our lighting solutions enable state and local government agencies to control internal and external environments in order to maximize occupant comfort and performance and lower energy and maintenance costs.
Not all buildings and programs have the same needs. We develop everything from a lower cost, simplified approach to high-value smart building designs that integrate advanced lighting control systems and building automation in order to provide owners with the information needed to make informed decisions. Beyond interior lighting, we also design and build exterior lighting and street lighting systems.
We calculate costs and savings on a building-by-building and structure-by-structure basis. We establish the ROI by comparing the total project cost (design, labor, material, and waste removal) with projected annual energy savings in both dollars and energy units (kW and kWh). Comprehensive project management and execution involves scheduling, auditing, job site management, and close-out documentation.
Federal incentives, cost-savings, safety. and environmental benefits are just a few of the driving factors behind the demand for and continued market growth of street-lighting systems and technologies.
We incorporate LED street lighting technology, networked controls, and automation systems for cities and towns as well as campuses. We develop everything from lower cost, simplified approaches to high-value smart city designs that integrate advanced lighting control systems and automation in order to provide the data needed to make informed decisions.
We establish the ROI by comparing the total project cost (design, labor, material, and waste removal) with projected annual energy savings in both dollars and energy units (kW and kWh). Comprehensive project management and execution involve scheduling, auditing, job site management, and close-out documentation.
We can do the following:
- Create multiple versions of photometric studies, field measurements, and engineered drawings.
- Replace city lights with intelligent controls and LEDs to eventually save cities up to millions of dollars a year in energy expenses.
- Install parking lot fixtures that include motion detection and off-hour dimming to reduce energy consumption and lower the lighting levels after hours, all while maintaining safely lit spaces.
- Add new pathway lighting and street light poles to address underlit areas.
- Replace internal pole wiring and fuses.
Advanced water efficiency solutions provide ROI-driven results for state and local government facilities. We identify, design, and build water, sewer, and energy-efficiency solutions unique to each facility to provide substantial infrastructure improvements, reduce water and energy use, and save money, as well as identify hidden or unknown water use to improve water efficiency outside each facility.
Our solutions range from domestic plumbing applications to HVAC equipment, including condensers and cooling tower optimization. We also design and build reverse osmosis water purification, water leak detection, low-water harvesting, storm-water management, and smart irrigation systems, including design and installation of controllers that analyze weather patterns and soil vapor transformation.
State and local government buildings can save up to 20% on heating and cooling costs when our project delivery teams implement air sealing and energy loss prevention measures.
A thorough site audit can reveal weaknesses in the building envelope, pinpoint locations of air loss and energy leaks and inadequate insulation, and identify other structural faults that can decrease your building’s energy efficiency. Our goal is to ensure that everything meant to stay outside actually stays outside and that everything meant to stay inside actually stays inside.
The audit can cover visual inspections of foundations, rooms, basements and attics, doors, and windows. It may also include surface thermographic imaging to identify areas of heat loss or gain, infiltrometer tests to locate air leaks that need to be sealed, and visual inspection for signs of infiltration of exfiltration such as cob webs.
Our expertise includes the following:
- Building envelope performance audits
- Air barrier penetration sealing
- Weather stripping and caulking
- Insulation and spray foams
- Window solutions
- Solar shade solutions
- Cool roof technologies
- Destratification solutions
- Pipe insulation
- Turnkey installation
Our data analysis and triage services enable local municipal owned utilities to implement smart meter systems and other metering, water auditing, and loss control initiatives. These initiatives position them to lower operating costs and recover revenue through accurate, solid state meters that offer additional functionality such as leak detection that benefits their customers.
Long-term revenue and cost assurance includes accurate and timely bill delivery, actionable data to assist with decision making, and solid-state meters with 20-year guaranteed accuracy. System enhancements include remote shutoff valves and leak detection to help reduce revenue loss.
