“How do we develop an upgrade plan for existing facilities and set them on a green path?”
Begin with an assessment, we can help you determine the condition of building components and systems and establish a baseline. Replacing obsolete building envelopes and HVAC systems can lower operating costs, provide greater comfort, diversify functionality, and increase market value. Ongoing maintenance programs such as window replacement and roof repairs provide an opportunity to upgrade performance of the envelope.
When a HVAC system needs replacement, the improvements made to the envelope can pay off with smaller more energy efficient equipment. Harvesting sunlight and properly controlling solar heat gain can lend a hand in reducing reliance on HVAC and artificial lighting systems thus improving energy efficiency.
We can help you evaluate an upgrade strategy using total cost of ownership to concentrate your efforts on the items that give you the greatest return on your investment.
