Project Example - Agile Energy Studies at BCIT

Using agile project management techniques, we conducted 12 detailed energy studies over the course of two months, identifying over $2,000,000 in quick payback energy conservation measures.

Reference: Alexandre Hebert - Energy Manager

Project Example - Building Tuning at UBC Okanagan

Using non-invasive programming measures to improve building control, we achieved a reduction of $100,000 in energy costs in 2015.  These measures were implemented in 5 of 23 buildings, kick-starting deep energy retrofits at the UBC Okanagan Campus.

Reference: Colin Richardson - Manager of Energy Systems

Project Example - Systems Integration at TRU

Following a recommissioning study, it was recommended that the Old Main building at Thompson Rivers University undergo a significant Building Automation upgrade.  We managed the design, specification and project management of this highly complex upgrade and integration project achieving projected energy reductions of over 20% annually.
