Facility Condition Assessment

Facility condition assessments allow facility managers to effectively manage assets financially and operationally. It provides a plan for asset repairs and upgrades, allowing building managers to be proactive rather than reactive. EMCx provides affordable facility condition assessments within the greater atlanta area.

Energy Audit

Whether you are looking for low/no cost energy saving solutions, or a more significant energy saving capital project, it is prudent to start with an energy audit of your facility. This gives you a baseline to make informed decisions, and comparison when energy conservation measures are implemented. We conduct ASHRAE Levels I, II, & III energy audits.

Energy Management

Energy Management is the implementation of strategies that adjust and optimize building energy use. This is done using sequences and procedures that reduces energy requirements per unit of output while holding constant or reducing total costs of producing the output from the systems. EMCx provides energy management consultation services.

More About Commissioning

Commissioning is an owner’s process to measure, verify, and document that new and/or existing buildings are designed, installed, operated and maintained according to the owner specified requirements. Commissioned buildings are more likely to perform as intended, which can reduce problems and possibly extend life cycle of the equipment. Commissioning can be applied in several ways depending on the specifics of the building/project.
Retrocommissioning (RCx) is a systematic process for identifying less-than-optimal performance in your facility's equipment, lighting and control systems and making the necessary adjustments to improve performance. While retrofitting involves replacing outdated equipment, RCx focuses on improving the efficiency of what's already in place. RCx seeks to use low/no cost measures to improve effenciency of systems but with a short simple payback lifecycle.
Recommissioning is another type of commissioning that occurs when a building that has already been commissioned undergoes another commissioning process. The decision to recommission may be triggered by a change in building use or ownership, the onset of operational problems, or some other need. Ideally, a plan for recommissioning is established as part of a new building's original commissioning process or an existing building's retrocommissioning process.
