EES identifies the areas of waste with the greatest potential to save energy before
the implementation of new products and how building energy performance could be improved.
A cross-section of environmental parameters - thermal comfort, acoustic, air-change
rate, indoor air quality, and lighting is critical for a proper indoor environmental quality
EES reviews all relevant project information which is then implemented and integrated
into a selective cost-benefit process for investment into major retrofitting changes.
EES audits and reports on environmental parameters such as thermal comfort,
building acoustics, air exchange rate, thermal imaging, lighting comfort, facade heating
transfer and many others.
Inspecting buildings using a thermal imaging camera is a powerful and non invasive
means of monitoring and diagnosing the condition of buildings. Thermal imaging technology
has become one of the most valuable diagnostic tools for building inspections.
A cross-section of environmental parameters - thermal comfort, acoustic,
air-change rate, indoor air quality, and lighting is critical for a proper indoor
environmental quality (IEQ) design.
EES monitors, charts and identifies the hours during the week where the building
energy is excessive in order to assess energy savings and any reduction measures that
EES measures and identifies the air-leakage in the building envelope. Reported c
omparisons of measured Australian building envelope air-leakage against world best practice
found Australian buildings are amongst the worst performance in the world.
BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
EES's highly specialised Integrity Audit methodology provides an improved Building
Management System (BMS) scheduling outcomes with walk-through audits, sub-metering analysis
and control diagnostics.
LIGHTING & CONTROL
EES designs, evaluates and manages the lighting design of buildings to provide
sufficient indoor lighting while minimising energy consumption. Daylighting systems with
electric lighting integration provides sufficient indoor lighting levels while reducing
the energy usage.
DUCT LEAKAGE & INTEGRITY
Air ductwork can often be a culprit of air leakage. In problematic cases, fan energy
consumption will increase to maintain pressure in the duct. This can cause up to 35% more
overall energy use in the HVAC system.
BUILDING ENVELOPE SEALING
The effectiveness of a reasonable air-tight building envelope can help control
unwanted infiltration as well as reduce energy consumption while improving comfort.
Actual cases have resulted in a 50% building envelope air-leakage improvement.
GLAZING & SHADING
Recent technology has allowed for single glazing to be retrofitted into double
and even triple-glazed building facades on the inside of the building - allowing for a
multi high-rise building to be retrofitted.
