CONCEPTUAL ENERGY ANALYSIS
WEAVERCOOKE is a true advocate for sustainability. We encourage all of our clients to enjoy the benefits of energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies. Energy efficiency retrofits are an attractive option economically, but the most effective way to make changes to a building is before it has even been built. Using advanced tools approved by the Department of Energy, WEAVERCOOKE Construction can take building operation costs and occupant comfort into consideration from the very beginning.
LONG TERM SAVINGS Using METEONORM historical weather data going back twenty years, WEAVERCOOKE Construction can estimate factors such as the heating and cooling bills of a structure in the conceptual stages. Alternative designs may be created and compared, allowing you to choose the plan with the lowest operating costs and the greatest comfort.
MINIMAL COST Energy efficiency retrofits are a popular and effective method of cost savings in the industrial and commercial world. Conceptual energy analysis improves on this model by minimizing the upfront costs necessary to increase building performance. Without having to evaluate an existing structure or work around building occupants, energy efficiency measures can be implemented inexpensively.
PREPARING FOR THE FUTURE The cost of renewable energy systems has been plummeting, but not every building is built in a way to take optimal advantage of them. WEAVERCOOKE Construction can design your building so that it is optimized for renewable energy production, both in the near future and in later years, when prices are predicted to drop even further and energy costs rise.
