Energy & Commissioning Services

A Sustainable Approach to New and Existing Commercial, Municipal, Education, Healthcare, and Historic Facilities for Building Owners.

Renovating Facilities for Energy Efficiency

360 Engineering considers energy efficiency and sustainability in every project we design. Whether your goal is to: 

  • Optimize the long-term total cost of ownership
  • Highlight building sustainability for tenant marketing
  • Achieve net-zero energy use through electrification and other methods
  • Reduce energy consumption within a tight budget

Responsible Practices to Meet Local Energy Codes

We have the tools and experience to make it happen. And with energy codes becoming more stringent, responsible energy design practices are no longer optional. Our LEED and WELL Accredited Professionals, Certified Commissioning Authorities, and ASHRAE-Certified High-Performance Building Design Professionals (HBDP) provide a range of energy-related services and evaluations, including: 

  • Energy audits and energy modeling
  • Commissioning and Retro-commissioning
  • Building envelope material performance comparisons

A Strategic Approach to Your Building’s Energy Needs

When approaching a new project, we first understand and help define the energy goals. Then, based on your specific objectives, we develop a strategic, holistic approach to accomplishing them. Our team works closely with the architect, other design team members, and the contractor to make the entire facility energy efficient—not just the mechanical system.

Key Considerations for the Efficiency of Your Mechanical System

One of the most impactful decisions early in design, is selecting the mechanical system. While specifying more expensive mechanical equipment can increase efficiency, there is much more to consider. Sometimes the best choice is obvious, based on project location, use, and goals, but it’s often not as clear-cut. Based on our team’s extensive experience across various markets and climates, 360 Engineering walks you through the various options, from packaged rooftop units to geothermal heat pumps. We clearly present differences in as much depth as you desire, covering the initial cost, energy efficiency, comfort, performance, and maintenance.

Acting in the building owner’s interest, 360 Engineering offers mechanical commissioning services, from pre-design through construction and into occupancy, or retro-commissioning, working to improve the efficiency of your existing building’s equipment and systems. Our diverse commissioning options range from minimum code requirements to LEED Enhanced and many levels in between. Leading communication, documentation, and verification, our commissioning agents:

  • Coordinate with the owner, design team, and contractor
  • Follow a structured quality assurance process
  • Meet the owner’s requirements

Responsible Energy Design Practices For Your Building's Future

With extensive experience across various markets and climates, we can provide a sustainable approach to developing a plan that meets your building's energy goals.
