Atkins announced the launch of its national retro-commissioning business. Based in Fort Myers, Fla., the new business is being directed by Dave McFarlane, a retro-commissioning pioneer and former owner of the retro-commissioning firms McFarlane Inc. and Technical Commissioning Inc.

McFarlane will direct the technical, operations, and business development functions of the new organization. McFarlane’s team—including project managers, engineers, and field technicians—has already begun work on several retro-commissioning contracts Atkins is securing from a range of military, government, and private-sector clients.

McFarlane and his team will be housed in Atkins’ Asset Management Practice, which is managed by senior program manager Dennis Yates. In addition, McFarlane will work closely with program manager Mitch Gordon to help execute and manage projects throughout the United States.
