McKinstry Receives Key ESCO Approval in Kansas

Projects Funded From Existing Budgets Allow Entities to Allocate Budget Resources for Other Activities

OVERLAND PARK, KS--(Marketwired - Nov 8, 2013) - McKinstry announced today that its Kansas office received certification through the Facility Conservation Improvement Program (FCIP).

The company can now work with Kansas public entities using energy savings performance contracting to develop, fund, and implement actionable infrastructure projects, with guaranteed results. This process can be extended to a wide range of state agencies, municipalities, counties and schools that are seeking more efficient buildings and optimized operating budgets.

McKinstry is a nationally recognized design-build-operate-and-maintain firm specializing in consulting, construction, energy and facility services, with strong emphasis on high-performance buildings. McKinstry currently has similar certifications in 13 states, including all states from their Midwest region (Missouri, Wisconsin, and Minnesota). 

"The FCIP program is a streamlined procurement process that has been a proven project delivery model in Kansas for many years," said Steve Truebner, business development manager at McKinstry. "This approval comes at an important time, as Kansas is facing continued budget reductions and increasing facility and infrastructure needs," said Truebner.

To become a qualified provider, a detailed review of the company is conducted to ensure it can provide the performance necessary to guarantee long-term operational savings. When agencies use pre-approved companies, they no longer have to spend money and time acquiring qualified vendors.

"Our goal is to help Kansas public entities optimize their facilities, thus allowing them to focus those critical tax dollars on other priority activities," said Truebner. "We've helped past clients complete projects that would have otherwise been impossible to achieve."
