Blackwater Electric possesses professionals on staff that have obtained a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED is a national standard for developing high-performance, sustainable building structures and facility process management systems for reducing energy and meeting today’s green energy goals.
Blackwater Electric can help your facility reach its LEED Certification goals as set forth by the USGBC with an innovative approach to designing facility, site, and/or outdoor lighting, security systems, communications systems, fire protection and alarms, and power distribution systems design.
In developing a design and construction project, our role is to guide our clients by presenting alternatives and providing code compliant advice for structural electrical systems. Our mission is to design practical engineering solutions that complement the green building goals of architects, design professionals and building contractors.
A building awarded LEED Platinum status involved new construction design/build featuring solar panels and photovoltaic lighting, among other technologies. Blackwater Electric’s attention to detail did not go unnoticed to high-level Department of the US Navy Lieutenant Commanders, who frequently commented on the professionalism and precision of Blackwater’s work.
Whether increased energy efficiency, cost savings or natural resource preservation or any combination of the three is your goal, Blackwater Electric is a proven partner in the green building process. We have the experience and team to handle the unique requirements of your project. Our firm’s commitment to green building means we are committed to meeting all of our clients’ needs, and we are committed to making a difference in our community. Call us today to learn more about green building.
For Blackwater Electric, LEED projects and “green” building means:
- Efficient use of resources to reduce energy waste, increase savings and comfort
- Reusing and recycling as much material as possible during all phases of construction.
- Use of energy-efficient technologies such as lamps, ballasts, light-level sensors, and occupancy sensors
“Blackwater Electric Company was the electrical subcontractor for the life of the Addition to Building NH-95 project; substantial completion was in 2009. Due to the complexity of the electrical and communications systems in this facility, this project required an electrical contractor who was a TEAM player possessing excellent communications skills and a highly motivated and technically skilled talent pool. Your firm was the logical choice on all accounts. For the duration, both S.B. Ballard Construction and the Department of the Navy were very pleased with the professionalism, work ethic, management and overall construction quality delivered by your firm on this project.”
