Retrocommissioning (RCx)

Deferred maintenance is taking a toll on campus buildings, wasting energy, and consuming university finances. Retrocommissioning (RCx) is a dedicated effort to help the campus address this formidable challenge. RCx is an in-depth analysis of a building's HVAC systems and controls to restore or optimize conditions for energy conservation and sustainability, system efficiency, and air quality while maintaining or improving occupant comfort satisfaction.

Since August of 2007, RCx teams have accomplished system updates and upgrades in 60+ campus buildings for an average energy reduction of 27%. As of June 2016, RCx work has covered more than 8 million gross square feet and avoided $39M in utility costs.
