City – Washington, DC
Project Size – 350,000 SF


Group14 was contracted to implement SkySpark software as a pilot at the Washington Navy Yard to automatically detect operational issues in several buildings, totaling over 350,000 sq.ft. This pilot was conducted in partnership with the National Renewable Energy Laboratory to assess the potential for expanding monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx) to more buildings in the Naval District Washington (NDW) region.

The MBCx effort quickly and effectively identified numerous energy saving improvements and operating issues. This included air handing units that were not turning off properly on schedules and numerous airside economizer issues which were impacting space comfort and operating costs.


When compared with the retro-commissioning effort recently completed for the same buildings, the MBCx effort powered by SkySpark identified over 60% more issues and opportunities totaling to over $145,000/year in annual cost savings.
