Before We Build Anything, We Build Relationships.
A total focus on client needs is the key to our mutual success. At Performance Services, we dedicate time to getting to know each owner’s unique needs, priorities, aspirations, and challenges. Only then do we put forward design solutions. Our team provides an integrated approach, including programming, design, project management, building controls, and performance assurance. We engage the local community and utilize a collaborative approach throughout project development, construction, and beyond. We value long-term client relationships and are in for the long haul.
Every project starts with the end in mind, with the owner’s desired outcome guiding our work. We know that high-performing facilities and systems are more cost-effective to own and operate. So, we help public owners address deferred maintenance and pair solutions with real performance guarantees. Our turnkey approach has no gaps, so the outcome is predictable. We’ll cross the finish line together, knowing you’re getting exactly what you want and need from your project.

- What Sets Us Apart
How We Do It
Our team self-performs or provides leadership for the design, project management, control systems, and performance assurance work. We engage local community members whenever possible and utilize a collaborative approach throughout project development and installation. We leverage team relationships and handle desired changes within the scope of work without change orders to assure a quality result and a satisfied client.
What Sets Us Apart
Besides our unique design and delivery approach, our process provides additional key differentiators:
What We Do
Our integrated design and construction approach provides best-value projects with optimized indoor environments and significant energy and operational savings. Our core service offerings include:
GUARANTEED ENERGY SAVINGS PROJECTS
Performance contracting is a flexible funding mechanism that allows schools, universities, cities, towns, counties, and state governments to finance energy-focused infrastructure projects with the guaranteed energy and efficiency savings of the infrastructure improvements. As a result, no upfront capital is required.
Design-build construction is an integrated delivery model for infrastructure improvement projects for either new construction or renovations in which a single entity, working under one contract, performs both the design and construction of the project. Because there is only one contract, the design-builder sees the project through from the initial design concept to construction completion, carrying single-source accountability. Benefits of this approach include reduced owner risk, higher quality, quicker delivery, and cost efficiencies.
As a leader in design and construction, we understand that programming precedes design. As a result, we employ educational planners as core team members of our design team. They work with our clients and design team to examine educational needs, growth capacity, current infrastructure, learning environment, safety, accessibility, curricular enhancement, technology, site traffic flow, and space needs for special education offerings.
Before beginning an infrastructure-related renovation project, the first key step is to conduct a preliminary facility condition and energy assessment to identify how facilities are currently operating, identify potential issues, and provide a blueprint for future improvements. Once the assessment is completed, our clients have a thorough roadmap for planning their renovation projects. If they choose to proceed with a project, our integrated team can help implement it from start to finish.
SOLAR POWER SOLUTIONS
We have an in-house solar development and operations team of professional engineers and project managers who take a comprehensive approach to ensure solar solutions are designed to meet clients’ long-range energy master plans and needs. Our team takes a proactive approach to ensuring holistic, right-sized, integrated design, installation, and performance monitoring and reporting throughout the process.
SMART CITY INFRASTRUCTURE
Our team works with cities and towns to develop a tailored, multifaceted approach to infrastructure improvements that can be completed with budget-neutral financing. Key energy conservation measures and improvements include onsite power generation, networked LED streetlights, smart water meters, and water and wastewater improvements.
WATER AND WASTEWATER SOLUTIONS
We partner with cities and towns to identify what water and energy reduction strategies can impact the bottom line and contribute to a sustainable future. By implementing advanced metering infrastructure and wastewater treatment plant projects, we help clients save money while providing operational efficiencies.
The progressive design-build process was very smooth and interactive. The communication and working relationship with Performance Services has been excellent. I'm confident that we have a design that meets all our program needs, is innovative, highly efficient, within our budget, and will reduce ongoing operating costs.
