Whether it’s from the ground up or the transformation from old to new, ITEM understands how to integrate cutting-edge mechanical, electrical and building automation system technology into real-world solutions. Our goal is to design buildings and systems that will have a reduced energy footprint and a much smaller impact on the environment. Our facility optimization services provide assurance to facility owners and operators that their new and existing buildings will operate as efficiently as possible over their life cycle. Facilities are tested and functionally verified to operate at optimum performance.

Office buildings have more floor area (12.2 billion ft2 or 1.1 billion m2) than any other building type in the U.S. and have the highest total energy consumption (1.1 quadrillion Btu or 1.2 EJ) of any building type. Furthermore, the largest buildings have a higher energy use intensity (energy consumption per square foot) than any other size of building. This scale creates many opportunities for energy savings. A good place to begin is with an energy audit of the building.

A building doesn’t have to be new to be green. Today’s building owners are retrofitting buildings, converting existing buildings into models of sustainability. They are using new financing tools such as performance contracting to minimize financial risk and maximize energy savings. With an emphasis on “whole building” rather than piecemeal approaches, existing buildings can significantly lower energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions while producing financial rewards for owners.

Although the primary purpose of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in commercial buildings is occupant productivity, the objective of most changes to HVAC systems in the next five years will be to decrease energy cost. Because of rising energy prices and the drive to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions associated with building operations, many building owners have begun to manage energy cost actively as an asset, rather than a fixed cost. HVAC accounts for almost one-third of the energy cost in commercial buildings, so these systems hold great potential
