efficiency approached as a partnership.

This is why we work closely with owners, designers, and system operators to develop building automation concepts to achieve energy management goals. In the end, the result is a safe and healthy environment for the building’s occupants, as well as overall sustainability, excellent indoor air quality, and improved operations of existing and new facilities. This is energy well spent, and well saved.

Energy efficiency improvements support the MacDonald-Miller overall mission of making buildings work better. This may entail performing preliminary and investment grade audits, system retrofits, writing sequences of operations, programming control systems, air/hydronic balancing, troubleshooting, preventative maintenance, systems commissioning or performance management and verification. We’ll do whatever it takes to make a difference in energy savings.

Energy Services Company

MacDonald-Miller Facility Solutions is a trusted ESCO in the Pacific Northwest and is pre-qualified in Washington & Oregon.

A Case for Energy Savings.

The Seattle Aquarium is a 69,400 square foot facility that originally opened in 1977. It houses multiple aquatic and land exhibits, a restaurant, gift shop and a meeting/event space. The project scope included an Investment Grade Audit that resulted in energy efficient retrofits and new equipment including: a new HVAC Controls system, an LED lighting, 2 new destratification fans, 3 new air handling units, 4 furnaces and 2 boilers, the attic insulation of Pier 59 and performance management services to deliver and validate the guaranteed financial results.

Energy Results: The installed project is projected to save 4,703,029 kBtu/ year, 8% of their total energy usage. That’s enough energy to power 24 homes for an entire year.
