Press release from: performance systems development

Ithaca, NY – October 28, 2009 – Performance Systems Development announces a new tool for multifamily building professionals with the latest release of Building Performance Compass, a web-based energy efficiency software application. Building Performance Compass allows building owners, portfolio managers, contractors, and weatherization agencies to benchmark and track energy savings in commercial and multifamily buildings. For a software demonstration or more information, visit www.psdconsulting.com/buildingperformance.
Enhancements to Building Performance Compass include new multifamily support and features such as its fast-feedback report, which enables reporting energy savings as early as one month after work is completed. Compass also provides extensive tracking of building data and usage, as well as the ability to upload and track program specific documents at the building and tenant unit level.
Critical multifamily support includes sampling of tenant level meters and tracking apartment type details. Building Performance Compass is unique in its ability to compare all buildings, whether residential or commercial. The building comparison report offers a quick assessment of which buildings are performing poorly based on various energy factors, allowing decisions to be made about which buildings will benefit the most from retrofitting.
Building Performance Compass acts as a centralized hub for project information. Building managers, contractors, and weatherization agencies using Compass are able to easily assess the effectiveness of retrofit efforts. This latest update moves Building Performance Compass beyond energy tracking to a complete sustainable building management tool with the tracking of non-energy quantities such as water and waste.
