Deep Energy Retrofits

Specializing in a range of architectural and engineering fields, we are well equipped to guide you from start to finish.

Deep Energy Retrofits

A deep energy retrofit is an extensive and holistic approach to upgrading existing buildings. Deep energy retrofits involve comprehensive energy-related improvements that target the building’s enclosure, mechanical systems, lighting, and overall energy consumption. It also presents an opportunity for integrating renewable energy sources, optimizing the sizing of mechanical systems, improving indoor comfort and air quality, and reducing operational carbon emissions.

Combining our skills and knowledge base of architecture, building enclosure, mechanical engineering, and energy performance we are well-positioned to perform comprehensive analysis of the building’s energy usage and work with you to develop a carefully tailored plan to achieve the desired energy efficiency goals. Services we can provide include the following.

  • Design & consultation services for architectural, building enclosure, and energy efficiency elements.
  • Before and after energy modeling services to compare actual savings.
  • Solar panel array sizing design.
  • Construction field reviews and contract administration for retrofit projects.
