City of Duluth – Duluth, Minnesota
Asset and Energy Management Program
CR-BPS was hired to develop an Asset and Energy Management Program for the City of Duluth, Minnesota. This included comprehensive Condition and Energy Assessments for all City-owned above ground structures and sites. (i.e., civic, maintenance, parking, public works, parks, public safety). CR-BPS has worked with the Duluth Property Management Department for several years to populate their Asset and Energy Management software tool with each building’s/assets condition, site, and energy data. CR-BPS then provided on-call forensic investigative services to assist the City with more detailed planning for capital projects to correct respective building problems. Additionally, CR-BPS developed recommendations for corrective actions for 5- 10- and 20-year capital plans and budgets, energy conservation savings opportunities, and the basis for design of critical improvement projects that realize maximum benefits. CR-BPS services also included a utility tracking process to manage utility bill information in a standardized, single batch upload electronic system.
