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, verification of results, back-up plans, mid-course corrections and responsibility-assignment matrices.
