Organizations make commitments to reduce their carbon emissions. While the process may seems simple, getting it done within a limited budget is challenging. A decarbonization plan can address these challenges by improving building energy efficiency, rightsizing the heating equipment, and phasing the equipment replacement over time.

We provide professional engineering design for mechanical and plumbing systems. We work with building owners, contractors, and architects to design systems that work for the occupant.

HVAC Equipment Replacement Planning

We inspect your building and listen to your performance and sustainability goals. Then we make a phased replacement plan for your mechanical equipment. We provide financial analysis of equipment replacement cost, utility costs, and sustainability financing options.


Retrocommissioning is a process to inspect and tune up a building’s systems. Commissioning agents uncover issues the building owner had not noticed and resolve them early. These services improve energy efficiency, increase occupant comfort, provide owner control over the mechanical systems, and improve maintenance practices.

"Our organization has sustainability goals, but we needed a roadmap that was specific to our building operations. The timeline, in the Decarbonization Plan, is an ideal summary of the tasks ahead for our capital improvement planning.  The combination of summaries and detailed descriptions of the tasks made the plan useful to readers from technical and nontechnical backgrounds."
