Operations and Maintenance benchmarking focuses on four key areas of a facility budget:
1) Energy cost and consumption
2) Staffing levels by trade
3) Service contracts
4) Materials and materials management
Bernhard Energy Solutions utilizes the most current data available to compare a facility’s annual performance to peer group facilities, normalized by similar size, geographical location, services offered and operation.
After the final benchmarking report is published, Bernhard Energy Solutions can work with facility managers to develop and implement the recommendations. Key steps of implementation include incremental changes, continuous measurement and verification of results, back-up plans, mid-course corrections and responsibility-assignment matrices.
