McKenney’s helped T3 Labs reduce energy consumption and operating
costs at its facility in Atlanta, Georgia.
Energy costs for the building were a drain on the operating budget.
Limited cash flow meant funding was not available for energy
McKenney’s introduced a performance contract—it had to prove
monthly operating cost savings before billing for work. McKenney’s
financed the initiatives, which would only be repaid if objectives were
met. The team created a model of the building’s energy systems along
with a benchmark to compare past and future utility consumption
using bdoc® ValidateTM, a utility dashboarding tool. Then,
modifications were made to equipment and controls to reduce energy

The facility is on track to reduce utility costs from more than $13 per
square foot to less than $9. The institute has saved over 40 percent
on utility bills in the first eight months. It’s expected to save nearly
$200,000 annually and more than $1,200,000 over the life of the
