WinWerks works as your catalyst to integrate economic-based sustainability solutions into your existing or new buildings.


 

ECONOMICS + ECOLOGY = VALUE

In the United States alone, buildings account for:
•    72% of electricity consumption,
•    42% of energy use,
•    38% of all carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions,
•    40% of raw materials use, and
•    30% of waste output (136 million tons annually)

 

Against this background, the concept of “sustainable building” – reducing the harmful effect on the environment from buildings and construction activities – has been attracting the attention of project developers. Opportunities range from using recycled materials and low-polluting forms of transport in construction. You can benefit from projects that incorporate energy efficiency through improved insulation and on-site energy cogeneration or other distributed generation power sources like  solar or fuel cells. And water use can be reduced or reused through recycling. Sustainable building practices are increasingly important, attainable and cost effective while providing environmental stewardship. With our human creativity, engineering, commitment and technologies we can improve our current and future buildings to service us for less money/square foot than current capital and operating metrics.

WinWerks utilizes energy production and ecological practices to drive income to the bottom line, sustainably. Buildings use 42 percent of the nation’s energy— much of which is wasted through inefficient design and operation. While some savings opportunities are obvious and easily attainable, careful assessments, design, implementation, and monitoring will achieve much deeper cost-effective savings with a large portfolio impact. After the carefully chosen and modeled decisions are approved, you also want to know if you gained value enhancing outcomes. Measurement and Verification (M&V) post-commissioning processes ensure that the energy-saving systems are adjusted to meet the design parameters, which provide the intended economic rewards.

EXPLORE SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES AND MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR INVESTMENTS.

Integrating sustainability into a new or existing building can reduce capital expenses and cut energy bills, and often provides a simple payback in under a year to five years. Each dollar saved in energy costs translates into a $10 - $20 portfolio enhancement, offering an incredible inducement for project owners to make money with a vast and positive impact on the natural environment, human health, and the economy.

By aggressively adopting efficiency solutions, we can transform our buildings from energy drains to more comfortable, livable and workable spaces that can help usher in an efficient and renewable energy era.
