Asset and Energy Management Program

CR-BPS was hired to develop an Asset and Energy Management Program for St, Louis County Minnesota.  This included comprehensive Condition and Energy Assessments for all County-owned above ground structures and sites. (i.e., civic, public works, environmental services, government service centers).  CR-BPS worked with the County’s 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 County with more detailed planning for capital projects to correct respective building problems.

Examples of our forensic investigative work include:

  • Exterior enclosure integrity of several historic buildings
  • Viability of renewable energy generation
  • Energy modeling for Energy Star Certification
  • Minnesota State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) demolition regulatory requirements, Location study for Public Works Tool House’s in the 4th District
  • Predesign feasibility studies for consolidation of several offices.

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 continues to work with St. Louis County to provide updates and real time capital planning and energy management services.
