ABP provides cost-effective engineering solutions to green building challenges and value-added services in delivering high performing facilities throughout the United States.

Other Areas of Expertise

  • Commissioning Advocate – We serve as an advisor and advocate for you. We help  formulate a tailored approach to commissioning, re-commissioning and retro- commissioning for your projects and your performance and energy goals.
  • LEED Commissioning – We provide a unique commissioning approach tailored to LEED projects to enable your project team in attaining your green design goals. We know all LEED categories, (LEED-NC, LEED-CS, LEED-CI, LEED-Schools, and LEED-EB O&M) as well as versions of LEED from version 1 through the current version 3.0.
  • Building Enclosure Commissioning – We work as an independent advisor reviewing the enclosure through the design and construction phases. Proper conception and execution of the building envelope is critical to long-term resilience. Field and lab testing may be incorporated to help deliver a high performance enclosure.
  • Energy Optimization Facilitation – We provide review and advice in optimizing energy performance during the design and system selection phases of a project.  We will guide the energy modeling and simulation of building systems to optimize system performance and evaluate cost-efficient solutions.
  • Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) Advisory – We assist owners in obtaining the optimal IEQ performance for their project.  We recommend cost-effective, best practice strategies to enhance indoor air quality features in facilities.
  • Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Testing – We use state of the art equipment to measure numerous airborne contaminants such as formaldehyde, particulates, VOCs and carbon monoxide. Carbon dioxide may also be sampled to diagnose ventilation problems. Tests help in achieving LEED IEQ Credit 3.2 Construction Indoor Air Quality Management Plan – Before Occupancy (EQc3.2).
  • Measurement & Verification Advisory – We assist your building team in the development and deployment of tailored solutions for measuring and monitoring system operation and performance benchmarking.
  • Facility Information and Strategic Planning Services – We assist owners in strategic asset reviews.  We provide electronic Operation & Maintenance manuals, equipment documentation, and project record management services.  We assist in the implementation of Facility Information Management Systems for building managers and operators.
  • Continuous Commissioning – We assist owners in implementing ongoing continuous performance measurement programs to achieve operational and energy cost savings goals.  We guide building operators in continuous monitoring of system operation and periodic re-commissioning of critical building systems.In addition to these services, ABP has special capabilities in building system forensics, thermal envelope integrity, moisture intrusion mitigation reviews, high performing and resilient building mechanical systems, direct digital controls, and high efficacy lighting systems.

Green Design Firsts

ABP served as the Commissioning Authority for some of the very first projects in the history of LEED.
