Sustainability

Doing More With Less

Long before government regulations began to mandate environmentally responsible design, PEDCO was already proactively engineering high-performance buildings that dramatically reduced our ecological footprint. Our high-performance designs optimize energy efficiency, durability and productivity. Your innovative, engineering systems will be less expensive to operate, while creating a healthier, more productive work environment.

Energy efficiency. Water efficiency. Improved indoor air quality. Responsible construction practices. Reduced materials use and sourcing. These are just a few of the ways our high-performance buildings prove their worth by increasing your company satisfaction and reducing operating costs.

Our eco-engineering team will also apply our Lifecycle Analysis Process to help you maximize your return on your investment. Because what was once a design option is now a vital component in engineering a better world for your company, your employees and the communities where we all work and play.

High-Performance Building Lifecycle:

Strategy: Identify project goals and best pathway for success.

Modeling: We will model what the project requires to determine sustainability.

Financial Analysis: Estimate cost to build high-performance building as modeled.

Design & Construction: Once direction and costs are aligned, we begin design and build.

Commissioning: We will commission the new building to ensure it’s operating as planned.

Measurement: Ongoing analysis to determine success of new high-performance building.

The Truth About Energy Consumption:

Today, buildings account for 47% of total energy use, 70% of electricity, 60% of raw materials, and 12% of potable water use. These are huge levels of consumption and PEDCO is committed to ensuring they are reduced.

Save Energy.
Save Money.
Save The Planet.

A multi-year, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs survey of retro commissioning at 643 buildings identified over 10,000 energy related problems. On existing buildings, correcting problems led to an average 16% energy savings with an average payback of 13 months.

How Green Can Save You Green:

According to the U.S. Green Building Council, the life-cycle energy and operational efficiencies of high performance green buildings yield savings between 20% and 50% per year compared with conventional buildings.
