EnerNOC, Inc., a leading provider of energy efficiency solutions for commercial, industrial, and institutional energy users, today announced that it has been selected as the Commissioning Authority in a seven-year contract with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC). Through this master services agreement, which lasts through March 1, 2018, EnerNOC will work closely with building construction stakeholders to ensure that the City of San Francisco’s new buildings operate efficiently and to the owners’ specifications. The first project under this agreement is San Francisco’s new Public Safety Building, a 300,000-square-foot LEED Gold facility set to open in 2014. This contract also includes potential task orders for additional projects to which EnerNOC will contribute its energy efficiency services in the coming years.
EnerNOC has already served as the Commissioning Authority on a variety of buildings for the City of San Francisco, including the San Francisco International Airport, the renovation of the Moscone Center, and the SFPUC’s own headquarters building, a LEED Platinum facility. This agreement builds on the success of those initiatives, as SFPUC continues its commitment to the sustainable and economically sound development of its facilities.
“The Public Utilities Commission is assisting all San Francisco City Departments in building facilities that will benefit the city for years to come. That’s why efficient and innovative building design is an essential part of our long-term development plan,” said Masoud Vafaei, Program Manager at the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission. “Our relationship with EnerNOC has been highly productive, and we are pleased to be working with them on additional commissioning projects over the coming years.”
Located in the Mission Bay area of San Francisco, the new Public Safety Building will house the San Francisco Police Department Headquarters, as well as both a police and fire station. Construction on this $168 million facility began in early 2012, during which time EnerNOC has been working with the SFPUC and Department of Public Works to provide a full range of LEED commissioning services for the project.
“Commissioning is about more than earning plaques and certifications; it’s a sound investment in the lifecycle of a building. By keeping energy and related costs low at the beginning, the SFPUC is setting up its facilities for long-term operating success,” said Tim Healy, EnerNOC’s Chairman and CEO. “The SFPUC is clearly committed to efficient facility management, and this agreement is just the latest contribution to that cause. We are thrilled to be working with City leadership to improve energy management efforts across their facilities.”
As Commissioning Authority for the SFPUC, EnerNOC will provide documented confirmation that building systems function according to criteria set forth in the project documents to satisfy the owner’s operational needs for newly constructed facilities. This typically includes HVAC, building controls, water systems, lighting controls, and renewable energy sources. Depending on client needs, EnerNOC’s work may also extend to building envelopes, wastewater, security, electrical distribution, emergency generators, A/V, and telecom systems. EnerNOC works closely with building owners, engineers, general contractors, architects, and all subcontractors to achieve optimum building performance and efficiency from the outset.
