There is a broad consensus that buildings do not perform as well as they should. We believe it is imperative to look beyond today to discover more effective solutions for making buildings operate more efficiently. To do this successfully requires engaging all sectors of the built environment in the process. We believe our work and connection to actual building data can bring these sectors together.
Typical or traditional commissioning services are primarily a formality and are finished at the occupancy stage. At RED CAR Analytics, we take a different approach to commissioning. We engage early to provide system design review for functionality and carry this through and beyond occupancy, using building data to calibrate and instruct the team. This approach, developed from our extensive experience in system commissioning and monitoring building data, makes us exceptionally qualified to take the lead role to commission your buildings or campus for performance.
Monitoring Based Cx
Too often, properly commissioned building systems that should operate at optimum levels long after commissioning, degrade in performance within the first few years. Our Monitoring Based Commissioning, or "Persistent commissioning", is a service built on collecting trend data from the building and analyzing it to provide tangible recommendations. As a living environment, buildings need annual checkups, just like people. Even the best facility teams welcome solid engineering assistance to help keep their buildings operating to their highest potential.
Net Zero Energy Tracking and Support
Even with a good design, the goal of Zero Net Energy is not an easy target. Achieving this goal requires regular check-ins and troubleshooting to stay on track. Let us help you stay on track!

ASHRAE JOURNAL, August 2009
“While we can build the seemingly most efficient buildings, that means nothing if we cannot keep them operating efficiently. We need to learn why buildings' performance typically deteriorate 30% in the first four years of operation and the role commissioning or retro-commissioning can play to reduce that performance decay.”
