Energy Performance Engineering, LLC (EPE) assists clients to integrate ultimate performance and energy efficiency into building systems to meet the needs of growing complexity and intelligence of building control network.
The value of EPE’s commissioning services is beyond finding and documenting deficiencies. We help building owners make the best and most use of their facilities in preventing problems and demonstrating compliance with Basis of Design and Owner’s Project Requirements through commissioning.
What Makes EPE Stand Out
EPE delivers our unique commissioning and controls services by putting your functional building systems as our top priority. A commissioning provider needs to collaborate with owners, owner’s representative, designers, and installation contractors. With the recent sustainable building trends that a commissioning provider needs to have adequate credentials to achieve quality work as the building is turned over to owners.
EPE’s founder, Mr. James Jen, not only holds the most rigorous and the highest level of commissioning credentials, but in his past experience has also worked as a facilities engineer on the owner side, worked as a designer for a larger A/E firm, and as a building controls contractor; which helps him to have full knowledge of the role of each stakeholders – owner, designers, and contractors, in the implementation of the commissioning process and uniquely fitted the role of lead Cx agent to assist building owners to receive high-performance building systems. Also, our commissioning process and procedures match current Federal total building commissioning standards and industrial best practice.
“EPE did a great job assuring that all commissioning requirements were met for this very challenging project. I am very pleased with the outcome of the commissioning process managed by EPE. Jimmy Jen is an excellent commissioning agent and was able to conduct the commissioning process within some very challenging circumstances.
EPE exceeded the City’s expectations and was able to complete all technical aspects of the commissioning process while also managing good relationships with all parties, all within greatly extended timelines and delays.
EPE provided a great resource for the commissioning process during this process. It is clear that Jimmy has a deep understanding of the project requirements and that he was working to drive the project to a successful completion. As discrepancies arose, Jimmy provided insight based on his knowledge and helped all parties come to the conclusion that was best for the project. The testing plans developed by EPE were very thorough and they allowed for us to have a successful testing phase before building delivery.
