Energy Consulting

Facilities function differently based on their design and geographical location. LXC Engineering Group’s energy engineers strive to find options that allow owners to realize energy and operational cost savings for their projects. Our energy engineers provide the following services:

  • Energy Audits
  • Energy Modeling
  • Energy Performance Analysis
  • Predictive Analytics

Forensic Engineering

Forensic engineering is the application of engineering principles to the investigation of failures or other performance problems. Many times, forensic engineering involves testimony on the findings of these investigations before a court of law or other judicial forum, when required. Forensic engineering also tests failed, or like, components to determine the cause of the failure. LXC Engineering Group performs the following tasks once a problem has occurred:

  • Site Visit
  • Interviews of System Operators
  • Define the problem
  • Collect data
  • Analyze the data
  • Develop a hypothesis
  • Document the study

Forensic engineers are tasked with recreating the failure event and answer why they occurred. The team at LXC Engineering Group has vast knowledge and experience with many types of fires, accidents, and understand the value that the scientific method brings to the overall process.

Commissioning

ENSURING OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

Project commissioning is the process of assuring that all systems and components of a building or industrial plant are designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained according to the operational requirements of the owner or final client. LXC Engineering Group develop Commissioning Plans which are reviewed and approved by the client. Once the plan is executed, the system will operate efficiently.

COMMISSIONING ROLE

Commissioning is necessary to show users the installed system will operate smoothly and efficiently. Our methods demonstrate that all project requirements are met.

Commissioning looks at all phases of a project, from the planning stage to installation and operation to ensure clients that the system operates at optimal performance.

Continues Commissioning

MAINTAINING OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE

Continuous Commissioning combine various strategies that are used to address systems operation over the system Life Cycle. By commissioning continuously, we can see component wear trends and predict component operations of the system life cycle to ensure an optimal system.

Continues Commissioning incorporate multiple strategies which examine and address components of existing buildings that can be modified to optimize the system without heavy equipment replacement. A Return on Investment of between 25% and 50% and a savings of 10% to 40% is achievable. These noted elements include:

  • HVAC Systems
  • Energy Efficiency
  • Occupant Comfort
  • Sustainability
  • Carbon Footprint
  • Long Term Maintenance
  • Heat Island Effect
