CxGBS Sustainability and Energy Cost Saving Projects Recognized in Multiple Award Ceremonies

CxGBS project and project manager honored with 2012 GSA Project Management and CxGBS excellent workmanship awards

Online PR News – 23-August-2012 – Atlanta, GA – CxGBS project manager Jesse Ross is having a good week.

Ross’ project, the John C. Godbold United States Judicial Administration Building (formerly the Elbert P. Tuttle U.S. Court of Appeals Building) in Atlanta, Georgia, has been honored twice in the last month. Ross earned the 2012 CxGBS exceptional workmanship award for his involvement in Holistic Commissioning® for the Godbold project. The Godbold project was also recognized by the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Design and Construction during its 2012 Project Management Awards, earning the “Excellence in Project Management” designation for GSA’s Southeast Sunbelt region.

CxGBS, under the direction of Ross, provided Holistic Commissioning® services, Sustainable Design Consulting, LEED Guidance and Administration, and Energy Modeling. Ross helped Godbold meet and maintain quality, sustainability, and high-performance standards, which for the building resulted in a 52 percent savings in water consumption, a more than 64 percent savings in space heating, a more than 71 percent savings in space cooling, and a more than 30 percent total annual energy use cost savings when compared to code. Ross has extensive experience in new and existing building commissioning, project management and execution, as well as field work and construction industry experience.

The Godbold building is one of two CxGBS projects recognized at the Project Management Awards. The second was for work on the new Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. CxGBS provided energy optimization, energy modeling, LEED consultation and guidance. H. Jay Enck, co-founder and Chief Technical Officer, is pleased CxGBS was a team member of the two projects recognized at the GSA awards. “CxGBS has been assisting GSA project teams solve building problems including moisture intrusion, high energy costs, indoor air quality and operational issues for over a decade in buildings of varying scope and scale throughout the country,” says Enck.

Ross was reportedly caught off guard, but pleasantly surprised, by the honors.
