Pillar 1: Synergy then Evolution
A single company works on all phases of the retrofit: feasibility study, design, financing, construction, post construction, optimization, measurement and verification. This creates a team synergy that allows each phase of the project to seamlessly integrate into the next. Technical expertise is transferred without disruption. There is no confusion, lost information, or redoing of work with different contractors exiting and entering.
The building improves through an evolutionary conversation among a united, multidisciplinary team of energy efficiency experts, engineers, construction managers, financiers, incentive/subsidy specialists, communications personnel, technical instructors, optimization specialists, and building owners and operators.
Accountability rests with a single company. As a result, time, material and intellectual capital are used to their fullest.
