Orlando, FL (PressExposure) March 20, 2013 -- Archability, an online portal for architectural and design services, today announced that its crowdsourcing platform now supports consulting services for energy efficiency projects. As buildings become smarter and more efficient, projects are becoming more complex and require multiple skill sets to achieve sustainability. Industry analysts such as Pike Research predict a two-fold increase in the market for energy efficiency projects and retrofits in commercial buildings, reaching $152 billion by 2020. To support this growing demand, Archability opens its doors for collaboration in an evolving market and allows homeowners, building owners, builders, specifiers, architects and designers to liaise with energy experts across the globe.
"Today's smart building projects are becoming increasingly comprehensive and sophisticated and as a result, architects and designers have been forced to adapt," said Livingstone Mukasa, founder and CEO of Archability. "As certifications like LEED become the market norm, projects now require multiple parties to help meet energy efficiency goals. We are providing a forum for all stakeholders to connect and contract the necessary skill sets for any given project."
A detailed description of the project posted onto the online platform is all that is needed to initiate collaboration. From there, dozens of efficiency experts can bid on the project, working in tandem with owners, architects, designers and commissioning agents. From HVAC and lighting to building envelope and automation solutions, detailed plans can help drive a final project that maximizes monetary savings by reducing energy consumption.
Crowdsourcing the effort can also drastically reduce overall project costs. With Pike Research forecasting the commissioning services market to grow from an estimated at $2.2 billion to $4.4 billion by 2020, increasing the talent pool can help create a competitive market on an individual project basis.
