Retro & Existing Building Commissioning in Dallas-Fort Worth

Bring Your Building Back to Life

Bringing an existing building to peak functionality based on its current use is a task not just any company can take on. Engaging with McCownGordon’s retro-commissioning team in Dallas-Fort Worth means we can identify and correct any inefficiencies in your building that could potentially be wasting thousands—or even tens of thousands—of dollars annually.

Retro-Commissioning at McCownGordon is designed to reduce building energy loss.

Identify and meet energy efficiency and performance goals through our extensive property review against comparable property benchmarks.

 

Retro-commissioning can prove to be the most important building efficiency process implemented for your buildings.

Most waste in commercial buildings is invisible in day-to-day operations, similar to what happens under the hood of a car. From broken dampers/valves or HVAC system design problems to unwarranted human interaction with temperature controls can create significant energy waste, even leading to simultaneous heating and cooling.

Our specialized, experience commissioning team can create a detailed engineering evaluation focused on energy savings, including low-cost or no-cost energy saving measures (generally over a 2-year payback period). Commissioning an existing building goes beyond day-to-day maintenance by addressing high energy costs and resolving operational problems. This includes an assessment of existing mechanical and HVAC systems, lighting, service water systems and automatic controls.

Senior Commissioning Manager

Leveraging his years of experience, Jereme specializes in building performance optimization, life- cycle cost analysis, cost-benefit analysis, carbon footprint reduction and energy conservation measures. He has a diverse background in system design, new and retrocommissioning, energy management, and test & balance with apassion for sustainable design and building optimization, resulting in an extensive understanding of MEP systems, their functionality and interaction with one another.

Andrew Shaver

Sr. Commissioning Specialist

Andrew brings a different viewpoint to the commissioning process. Coming from a background of facilities management and program management for construction activities in multi-site organizations, Andrew has spent time across the table as the owner. He has lead activities such as directing design decisions, operating procedures, leading multiple design-build projects, and understanding the cost associated with mechanical systems and their requirements. Over the last decade, he has worked to institute new and retro-commissioning in the facilities he served and advocated for optimization to prolong the life of mechanical systems, reducing operating costs, and aligning real-world metrics with design intent for optimal occupant comfort and usability.
