InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance Member McKenney's, Inc. Leads in Energy Efficiency

Atlanta, GA (I-Newswire) December 6, 2013 - Members of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance, an international alliance of independent building automation contractors, have extensive experience helping customers improve the energy efficiency and performance of their facilities. Some of that experience is with their own buildings which have achieved the ENERGY STAR® rating or Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED®) certification.

"InsideIQ firms lead by example through operating energy efficient facilities or through participation in the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) and becoming ENERGY STAR Partners," said Frank Rotello, president of the InsideIQ Building Automation Alliance. "This provides us with a depth of knowledge about programs such as LEED and ENERGY STAR, which we can share with our customers. Facility owners and operators want to reduce energy costs through improved efficiency, and a growing number of municipalities require buildings to meet energy efficiency benchmarks. InsideIQ members can assist facility managers who are unfamiliar with the process of certifying and benchmarking the efficiency of their buildings and lead them successfully through the process."

InsideIQ member firms have diverse green building certifications, ratings and expertise. McKenney's, Inc. in Atlanta, Ga., has a LEED Gold certified facility, is an ENERGY STAR Partner, and is a member of the USGBC. Control Services Inc. in Omaha, Neb., has an ENERGY STAR rated facility as well as a GreenSTAR certification from the Mechanical Service Contractors Association of America. The company is also a member of the USGBC. More information about other InsideIQ member firms and their green building certifications can be found here

McKenney's, the Southeast's leader in building automation and security and a proud member of InsideIQ, is dedicated to green building practices and takes pride in helping their customers build and retrofit building systems to improve energy efficiency and conserve natural resources. They have established an impressive portfolio of LEED-certified projects, including their own corporate headquarters in Atlanta.

"InsideIQ members offer expert assistance to our customers in order to improve the energy efficiency and performance of their facilities, whether to initiate ENERGY STAR ratings, LEED certification or just to lower utility charges," said Rotello. "We believe that an organization-wide energy management approach helps our customers enhance their financial health and aid in preserving the environment for future generations. This is the same philosophy we apply to our own facilities."

A program of the Environmental Protection Agency, ENERGY STAR is a voluntary partnership between businesses, government and others united to protect the environment by adopting energy-efficient practices. LEED is a suite of rating systems for the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of green buildings developed by the USGBC and is intended to help building owners and operators find and implement ways to be environmentally responsible and resource-efficient.
