Local contractor MacDonald-Miller Facility Solutions has partnered with Centrix Energy Partners LLC to leverage Centrix’ national network of energy services companies that design, develop, finance, and implement customized energy efficiency and connectivity upgrades for clients throughout the United States.

MacDonald-Miller and Centrix will combine their respective strengths and industry expertise to offer enhanced utility infrastructure and building efficiency upgrades for public-sector clients to optimize their buildings and services. This includes leveraging next-generation strategies such as smart water conservation and integrated resource management, as well as installing wireless networks for communities to improve overall connectivity to the internet. This partnership embraces the industry’s best smart technology, which includes fault detection and diagnostic analytics software, indoor air quality solutions, and automated metering systems so customers can truly understand utility costs and identify opportunities to save.
“The strength of the alliance means we have a partner with additional tools that will continue to help MacDonald-Miller and its customers improve building efficiency in aging infrastructures,” said MacDonald-Miller President Gus Simonds. “We are thrilled to partner with Centrix, the industry-recognized experts specializing in programs centered on energy-efficiency and smart tech solutions. This relationship as a Centrix regional partner opens immediate business opportunities for MacDonald-Miller and we look forward to delivering an exceptional customer experience for our existing and new clients.”
The partnership allows MacDonald-Miller to offer new services to its public-sector clients, including automated water metering technology to better account for costs and leak identification.
