Energy Efficiency (aka energy conservation) refers to efforts made to reduce energy consumption within a facility in order to preserve natural and financial resources for the future, and to reduce environmental pollution. It can be achieved through efficient use of energy (when energy use is decreased while achieving a similar outcome). Energy efficiency/conservation may result in increased availability of financial capital, reduced environmental impact of the energy you use, national security, personal security, and human comfort.
act of improving or replacing (upgrading) the structural, mechanical or
electrical components that make up a facility/customer portfolio. Some
of the more regularly employed facility upgrades/improvements include
lighting and lighting controls, heating, cooling and ventilation, water
conservation, roof replacement, ceiling, roof, and wall insulation,
motors, drives, windows, doors, and exit signs.
Design Build Services
is a construction project delivery system where the project’s design
and construction aspects are contracted for with a single entity known
as the design-build contractor. This system is used to minimize the
project risk for an owner and to reduce the delivery schedule by
overlapping the design phase and construction phase of a project. The
most efficient design-builders, such as ConEdison Solutions, have design
and construction professionals working directly for the same entity.
Design-build focuses on combining the design, permit, and construction
schedules in order to streamline the traditional design-bid-build
environment. This does not necessarily shorten the time it takes to
complete the individual tasks of creating construction documents
(working drawings and specifications), acquiring building and other
permits, or actually constructing the building. Instead, ConEdison
Solutions strives to bring together design and construction
professionals in a collaborative environment to complete these tasks in
an overlapping fashion; i.e. construction has begun while the building
design is being finalized. Typically, the hallmark of a Design/Build
project is that one organization is responsible for both design and
construction of the project.
