Factories and buildings used for manufacturing are often very large and employ energy-intensive systems to heat, air condition, ventilate, and light the space. These systems are necessary to support production and personal, but “the energy used annually by manufacturing buildings costs industry about $12 billion and is equivalent to the energy used in 34 million passenger cars or in 11 million homes.* (U.S. Department of Energy)
Our team has extensive experience working in industrial and manufacturing facilities to provide energy reduction and efficiency solutions. This approach combines our expertise in the areas of controls, lighting, HVAC systems and mechanical systems. Our experience with these energy-intensive systems allows us to make the best changes for each building. We leverage the future energy savings and operational savings of the proposed building upgrades to pay for the project over time.
Some of our clients have saved upwards of 35% of facility operation costs and generate their own power recovered from on-site processes.
Not all energy services or design-build project firms are set up to handle heavy-duty process industrial projects, which is right where dedicated attention is needed. Our commercial and industrial team knows their way around the complex and sometimes hazardous environments of large manufacturing and distribution facilities, and can develop custom solutions to help your bottom line.
Our engineers work relentlessly to find every opportunity to improve efficiencies, recover energy and reduce wasted energy, all while creating a more worker-friendly and productive environment. Plus, to reduce risk of shutdown or production losses, we can coordinate a live switch for any equipment replacement.
