As owners expand their focus beyond COVID, looking inward to initiatives such as energy reduction is a good way to positively impact budgets and the bottom line. Engaging the services of a Professional Engineering firm to assist in achieving some level of energy reduction in their facilities is the first step to a sustainable energy plan. Various approaches range from an ASHRAE Level I or Level II Energy Audit to some form of Existing Building Commissioning can accomplish this goal, albeit some accomplish the goal better than others. This presentation will discuss the Continuous Commissioning (R) process and the documented results of a healthcare facility that successfully implemented this strategy.
