Factors such as construction of buildings, electric, gas or water system layouts, building proximities, changes in elevation on the site, heating/cooling systems details, etc., affect the system design.

Utilizing the data available, a scope of work is developed summarizing the objective of the project, the equipment and technology to be utilized and desired result. The design build scope of work is made specific yet flexible enough to deliver a quality product, based on client expectations and a valued price.

Set-Up & Quality Control
Upon installation, the project administrator monitors equipment an installation. The project administrator maintains oversight 3 to 6 months to insure the project meets the project specification. They also coordinate with the installers and billing departments to address the accuracy of the meter reads and bills.
After installation, Ikehu Utility Solutions reviews the installation and billing information. The site is set-up consistent with the contracted agreement. After 3 to 6 months the project administrator transfers the site to the Account Manager. The account manager will become the single point of contact for all aspects of the site.
The account manager prepares monthly site performance reports. The accounting team will manually analyze the daily data on a monthly basis, to look for any possible anomalies. From the data, service work can be coordinated with onsite personnel and the service technicians, to address issues as they arise in a timely manner.
