Bissell Companies, Inc

Bissell has a reputation for green building with its development of more than 1 million square feet of speculative green office space at its south Charlotte business park. They are continuously looking for dynamic ways to be stewards to the environment and community. Bissell requested that MCI analyze and look at 24 of their facilities (1,850,000 sf.) in order to develop ideas and opportunities to:

  • Reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions
  • Lower operating costs
  • Increase building performance
  • Increase tenant comfort and satisfaction
  • Increase value and marketability of their facilities

  • Extracting utility meter data using a pulse counter and wirelessly transferring data into the central Building Automation System (BAS) of each currently unequipped building for monitoring and verification of real time energy consumption and project savings (19 buildings)
  • Management of the EnergyCAP energy management software for analyzing energy savings over time and calculation of each building’s Energy Star rating (all 24 buildings)
  • Tenant education outreach program including a publication entitled “Ten Ways to be a Green Tenant,” and sponsorship of a free website link called GreenQuest where tenants can track the energy use in their homes (over 6,000 tenants)
