*Commissioning Agent / Energy Auditor*

Location: New York, NY

Position Type: Full Time


YRG is seeking a Commissioning Agent and/or Energy Auditor to support our
green building work on new and existing building projects. For new
construction projects, the candidate will perform all tasks associated with
building energy system commissioning as specified by LEED, including
pre-functional systems review, functional performance testing, review of OPR
and BOD, and writing commissioning reports. For existing facility projects,
the candidate will conduct ASHARE Level I and II energy audits,
re-commissioning, and provide recommendations for cost-effective efficiency

In addition, the candidate will provide general support to YRG staff
(including energy modelers, design assistance providers, operations and
maintenance consultants), to inform the strategic and technical direction of
projects, and optimize those projects relative to the client’s
sustainability goals. Our goal is to provide a seamless transition from
design and energy modeling, through commissioning and operations to help
ensure that sustainability goals are seen through to the long term.

Knowledge of the ASHRAE-90.1 energy codes, LEED green building rating
systems, and NYSERDA incentive programs are a must.


The candidate should have a MEP engineering background, significant
experience (at least 3 years) working in a related field (building science,
MEP, etc.), completed at least five commissioning, energy audits, or
retro-commissioning projects as the lead on those projects, and a relevant
accreditation in the field (e.g. Certified Energy Manager, BCxA), etc.

The candidate should have knowledge of building energy systems (shell,
lighting, HVAC, controls) and efficiency measures. The ideal candidate will
have strong analytical skills, as well as strong communication skills, and
be both willing and able to support project teams in all aspects of building
design and operation.

Additional preferred technical knowledge and experience could include:

§ Renewable energy technologies and analytical models

§ Direct experience with the LEED-EB:OM and LEED-NC Rating Systems

§ Cost-benefit analyses

§ New Jersey, LIPA, CT, and federal rebates and incentives for energy
efficiency and renewable energy

Lastly, the successful candidate should exhibit strong time management,
organizational, and presentation skills; be flexible to changes in deadlines
and work focus; and be highly self-motivated. This position will require
working independently as well as closely with other staff members and
members of multiple client project teams.


Salary is commensurate with experience.


If interested, please send a resume and a work sample (sample Cx plan, audit
report, etc.) to Alice Mogck at amogck at
