Global Facility Solutions Wins Retro Rumble Competition

Posted on:

Global Facility Solutions is proud to be named the “Overall Winner” of the inaugural Retro Rumble building energy efficiency competition. Sponsored by the Energy Management Association (EMA) in partnership with ENERGY STAR, the contest assessed energy efficiency success in commercial and public buildings.

According to EMA, “participants were judged based on their overall changes in ENERGY STAR score and Site Energy Use Intensity (EUI).”

Global Facility Solutions was named the “Overall Winner” for the 800 North Brand project. The property, located in Glendale, CA, achieved an ENERGY STAR score of 96, an increase of 20 points.

Global Facility Solutions’ retro-commissioning program identified system deficiencies that impacted building performance and provided corrective actions to improve operations and reduce energy costs. Through new ownership, operations of the HVAC systems were revised to improve energy efficiency while capital improvements provided enhancements to the building automation and control system. The property also recorded an EUI change from 70 to 34.

The Energy Management Association provides education, training and certification in the field of building and facility energy efficiency.
