SEATTLE - The McKinstry Co., Seattle, received a 10-year Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC) worth up to $5 billion from the U.S. Department of Energy. McKinstry was one of 16 service companies to receive a contract that could result in up to $80 billion in energy efficiency, renewable energy, and water conservation projects at federal buildings around the country and the world.

Under an ESPC, a contractor such as McKinstry designs, constructs, and obtains all necessary financing for a project, and the agency pays for the work over time from the savings reduction in the utility bills, which are then paid by the agency’s appropriated funds. The contractor guarantees the energy improvements will generate savings.

The McKinstry Co. is a full-service mechanical contractor with a staff of 650 who deliver a range of services including mechanical construction, engineering, architectural metal, energy/LEED services, and maintenance and facility management.
