“Building owners can realize significant energy savings and lower operating costs through commissioning,” said the firm’s president, Will Wright. “Our job is to optimize performance  and energy-efficiency of a facility, new or old.” 

With more than 14 years of direct industry experience in building  commissioning and retro-commissioning, Wright is well-qualified to lead a team of skilled professionals. “Our focus is on systems accessibility, testability and maintainability,” said Wright. “Technical commissioning can begin at any stage in the building process, but it has the greatest long-term value when we are involved from planning and design through building occupancy and operation.”

Brooks + Wright Commissioning is located in BBA’s Center City offices and will call upon the firm’s practical knowledge of MEP systems and project delivery success.

Wright, a graduate of Pacific University, has been providing building  commissioning and retro-commissioning, energy management and LEED administration services since 1998.
