New Construction Services
Rivion provides Energy Modeling services that help predict energy use of newly designed buildings and models the impact of energy efficient improvements and existing building energy efficiency. Our experts have assisted clients in a wide array of projects including energy retrofits, LEED® certification and PACE funded projects.
Commissioning minimizes the negative impact buildings have on the environment by verifying the mechanical systems are designed and constructed to operate as intended. When considering the long term benefits, commissioning is a cost effective way to ensure the project building is aligned for energy efficient success and that success continues throughout the building’s life cycle. We are responsible for every aspect of pre-assessment and commissioning. We lead, review and oversee the completion of the commissioning process and serve as an objective advocate for the owner.
Measurement and Verification (M&V)
Our team of sustainability experts utilizes measurement and verification in the evaluation of project performance to determine if the project meets or exceeds the expected outcome. Rivion uses the International Performance Measurement and Verification Protocol (IPMVP) and the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) guidelines to establish a baseline, and verify results of energy, water and renewable energy projects.
LEED Assessment and Certification
LEED for New Construction addresses design and construction activities for both new buildings and major renovations of existing buildings, which includes major HVAC improvements, significant envelope modifications and major interior rehabilitation. While primarily focused on design and construction, LEED for New Construction also helps lay the foundation for sustainable operations and maintenance practices once the project has been completed. Planning for green operations and maintenance from the start can help building owners and staff ensure that the building performs to its full potential.
WELL Certification and Consulting
The WELL Building Standard® is the world’s first building standard focused exclusively on human health and wellness. It is a performance based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing. Rivion is qualified to provide the required measurement and reporting to enable members to receive WELL Certification.
