Step 4: Implementation
Once a list of projects is identified through the development of the Syrx Energy Reduction Plan, Pathian offers project management and owner engineering services from planning and procurement through implementation and technical training. Turnkey management services for new systems as well as upgrades and retrofits are also available. If funding is required, Pathian can provide financing options.
Project management services are performed on a time and materials basis, including:
- Defined project task list from the Syrx Plan
- Solicit estimates/issue contracts for all contractor work
- Clarify HVAC control system design document and coordinate contractor work
- Verify system commissioning to Owner’s Project Requirements (OPRs) exactly as designed/engineered
- Provide sustainability training
Step 5: Sustaining Savings
Effective energy management begins and ends with effective energy committees. They are the driving force behind all successful energy management programs. This is only possible if energy data is readily available in user-friendly reports to evaluate performance against established baselines.
After project implementation, Pathian provides continuous, automated reports to track, validate and sustain expected energy savings through its Energy Manager Web Portal. Using patented Pathian® Curves and Component Level Benchmarking™, these real-time, customizable reports are effective tools for tracking and sustaining savings during the life cycle of the project. They also help identify further opportunities and give justification to additional energy-saving projects.
With an annual subscription fee beyond year one, building owners may continue to receive Energy Committee Management services and reports.
