This article explores the issues associated with leveraging a necessary O&M expenditure in order to improve efficiency, sustainability, and performance.


As buildings, systems, and

failure, it's common for the engineering group to approach a trusted contractor

to obtain a price to replace current equipment with equivalent capacity. Thus,

projects frequently are handled on a design-build basis using the installing
