Combined Design and Construction

Performance Services improves school facilities and addresses deferred maintenance issues through guaranteed energy savings contracts and design-build construction/renovation. Our combined design and delivery process allows us to maximize quality results and improve client satisfaction. We provide complete transparency throughout the design and construction process: No smoke and mirrors, no finger-pointing. Performance Services provides detailed engineering designs upfront with actual energy savings, guaranteed, then allows you to see each bid that comes in with open book pricing. When construction begins, we guarantee there will be no change orders. And when the project closes, you’ll know exactly how much you’re saving off your energy bills with accurate measurement and verification and sole accountability for the success of your project.

How We Can Help

We partner with public owners to improve facilities and address deferred maintenance without using restricted bonding capacity by utilizing guaranteed energy savings contracts (GESCs). You will see dramatic utility cost savings when replacing old, inefficient equipment with new, energy-efficient equipment. The cost savings are guaranteed and provide funding for the facility upgrades. As a result, you enjoy improved comfort and reliability without impacting bond capacity. Typical improvements made through GESC projects include upgraded building controls, HVAC replacement, LED lighting, new roofs and windows, solar power, and water-saving plumbing fixtures. We also complete new construction and renovation with design-build delivery.

  • How We Do It
  • How We're Different

How We Do It

Performance Services provides both design and construction that is enabled and focused on quality results for our clients. Utilizing a combined design and delivery process, we perform essential functions, including design, project management, optimization, and performance assurance work, rather than relying on subcontractors for these services. Our team utilizes a cohesive and collaborative team approach throughout project development and implementation to maximize quality results and client satisfaction.

How We're Different

Performance Services conducts renovation projects using an integrated design and delivery approach. It is a collaborative process designed to save clients time and money. Additionally, on every project we provide:


Here's how we provide value:

  • 01


    We will never ask you to sign a contract without having detailed engineering drawings attached. You will have a clearly defined scope of work before the contract. You never have to guess what you’re getting.

  • 02


    We provide complete transparency throughout the design and construction process that allows you to see each bid that comes in with open book pricing. Clients can see exactly what is being purchased and spent.

  • 03


    At Performance Services, we are not tied to any manufacturer or vendor of materials, specialist equipment, controls systems, mechanical installation, or any other physical element of project delivery. We will work with your choice of local/preferred vendors and subcontractors.

  • 04


    Performance Services doesn’t just do the job; we guarantee it will deliver. Our promise of guaranteed performance applies to all of our projects, including energy savings for the life of the contract.

  • 05


    Our clients have total project control through just one touchpoint: Performance Services. This is a benefit of being fully responsible for the design and delivery. We will never point fingers or shift responsibility, and we will work until the issue is resolved. That’s how we do things.

  • 06


    Solar power can save Kentucky schools significant money and provide educational and environmental benefits. We design the solar power system and then provide schools with an estimated amount of energy generated by the solar array(s). This number can be used to determine your utility costs per month based on past usage.

    Energy Leadership Programs

    Energy Leadership is a cash-flow positive energy conservation program designed to fund facility needs from current energy expenditures with sustainability in mind. The behavior-based program is simple to implement and yields significant energy savings as a tangible and immediate reward. The program is designed to engage student leaders and staff in a meaningful and collaborative way to help conserve energy.


"We appreciate Performance Services' commitment to ensuring all of our questions and concerns are addressed immediately. Throughout the project to date, we appreciated the open candid conversations regarding the various aspects of the project. Overall, we are very satisfied with the service and support Performance Services continues to provide!"
