For the project’s original build, completed in 2015, Michele Sagehorn provided LEED fundamental and enhanced commissioning and Title 24 commissioning. In 2020, Red Car Analytics provided commissioning for the facility upgrade which was completed that year.

Shyh Wang Hall facility houses the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center, or NERSC, one of the world’s leading supercomputing centers for open science, which serves nearly 6,000 researchers in the U.S. and abroad. Shyh Wang Hall will also be the center of operations for DOE’s Energy Sciences Network, or ESnet, the fastest network dedicated to science, which connects tens of thousands of scientists as they collaborate on solving some of the world’s biggest scientific challenges.

The systems commissioned include: air handling units, water sourced heat-pumps, packaged units, UFAD system, cooling towers, heat-exchangers and associated pumps, heat-recovery system, exhaust fans, heating hot water system, domestic hot water system, electrical circuit breakers, substations, panelboards, switchboards, and energy meters.

The energy efficient design of this university project included an ALC Control System, offices, meeting spaces, lounges, assembly spaces, classrooms and roof terraces.


Red Car Analytics performed commissioning work for this project as a sub-contractor to Guttmann and Blaevoet and completed the work directly with the owner.
