Project Management and Implementation Project Management and Implementation


Project Management is a natural extension of our business at Burton, allowing clients to complete utility-saving projects without burdening internal staff. We provide a comprehensive approach to utility project implementation, moving clients from strategy/planning, rebate & incentive management, business case development, site prioritization, construction oversight, and measurement and verification (M&V) of project savings.

We have processes and systems in place that keep projects running smoothly, on-time and on budget. We have relationships in place with service providers in lighting, HVAC, air compressors, chillers, boilers, generators, plumbing and EMS and BAS systems. We control costs, schedule, and quality throughout every phase to deliver a successful single or multi-phased project.

The Turnkey Implementation option allows Burton to further streamline implementation of complex, fast-moving projects for clients. For selected retrofit projects, Burton has the experience to not only identify and manage project implementation, but also to provide open book contracting for the necessary equipment and services to complete the work. In the cases where utility incentives cover a substantial portion of the project expense, Burton can delivery the project at a net cost, often at less than 50% of the entire capital cost of the project.

Our experienced staff will provide expertise for your company’s energy program by:

  • Developing and executing a client and project-specific implementation process based on your in-house requirements and industry best practices
  • Supplementing and transferring energy conservation knowledge to your existing staff
  • Developing program systems and tools to enable you to have any desired level of control, visibility and participation in program delivery
