, my business parter for commercial projects. This is something that comes up in many discussions with clients. I thought it’d be worth posting:
Given that a building is essentially a system of components, it is important to review the entire system when making ROI calculations or level of performance decisions. A review of individual components may not accurately reflect the whole.
A quick metaphor to illustrate what we bring to your retrofit or new construction project:
Think of individual components or decisions as a serious of balls that you are juggling. The success of the project will be measured by the lowest flying ball you throw. If you throw one or more substantially higher than all the others, you may overspend in these categories. TE Studio’s job is to help you throw all balls to the same height to make sure we meet a common baseline of performance, and do it in a cost effective way.
