Sitton increases facility efficiency through the Commissioning (Cx), Retro-Commissioning (RCx), and Monitoring-Based Commissioning (MBCx) processes. Our commissioning processes are unique in that all are backed by analytics, which helps us save clients money and ensure their facilities run at their full potential.
Monitoring-based commissioning is a portfolio-wide platform that uses system data and analytics technology to optimize facilities’ commissioning or retro-commissioning processes. MBCx allows Sitton to monitor facility’s performance to maintain and improve its energy use and save our clients money over time. The MBCx program is designed to efficiently identify facility performance degradation. Without a program in place, buildings’ energy waste increases 20 percent within five years of the Cx or RCx efforts.
All buildings experience energy drift, the gradual change in total energy of a closed system over time. Our MBCx program identifies these changes so we can maintain and change the systems to optimize savings. Implementing an MBCx program yields an initial savings of eight to twelve percent and increases over time. Implementing our MBCx program also yields lower operation and maintenance costs and an increase in occupant health, comfort, and productivity.
Sitton will select and setup your software, provide operator training and MBCx program support, and maintain continuous contact and support to ensure your systems are running efficiently. Our MBCx is integrated within our Comprehensive Energy Strategy™ to provide you with the highest possible ROI.
MBCx During Commissioning (Cx) and Retro-commissioning (RCx)
While MBCx implies ongoing “monitoring,” it is important to integrate the process into any Cx or RCx. The MBCx software allows full coverage of systems and equipment in the most cost-effective way; without MBCx, full coverage is cost-prohibitive. Additional value is delivered during Cx by having monitoring in place during the warranty period while all contractors are still engaged.
