Parking Garage Lighting Retrofit

Hokanson Companies was engaged to perform property management services on a 600+ car parking garage. We developed a plan that would use 74 LED lamps including motion detectors to replace the existing 100 (mh) lamps.  All work was performed during second shift starting at 6:00 PM, providing no disruption to the garage occupants.  Our client’s previous electric trend demand was 82 kilowatts – 90 kilowatts.  The retrofit dropped the trend demands to 58 kilowatts – 70 kilowatts.  Usage is down nearly 50% and the monthly cost by 40% providing savings of approximately $2,400 per month.  The payback period for this modification including rebates secured from the local utility provider was less than two years.

Medical Office Facility Management

Hokanson Companies was engaged to perform third party facility management services for a 68,000 square foot medical office building. After reviewing the previous management’s budget, we aggressively bid contracted services and implemented OnCite™, our work order system. This approach allowed Hokanson the ability to reduce operating expenses which saved owners and tenants over 10% of their previous cost.

Corporate Facilities Management

Hokanson Companies was engaged to manage four corporate facilities totaling 400,000 square feet.  Our objectives were to reduce operating expenses, create a service request system, provide accounting services, and develop an internal maintenance team with a focus on preventative maintenance.  We were able to renegotiate or terminate outside vendor contracts and design an internal maintenance program which along with our OnCite work order system saved the company over $470,000 in the first year.

These changes lead to saving of $25,000 in annual heating, $125,000 in annual utilities and maintenance, 20-25% heating/cooling reduction at 26 locations, and over $40,000 in salary expenses.

Emergency Response

Hokanson Companies’ personnel were at the site within 30 minutes of a lightning strike at a bank branch. Fire in the attic space resulted in damage which required replacement of the roof, the exterior walls, all new finishes, new drive-thru tubes, and clean-up of damaged furnishings.  We called in appropriate contractors, relocated personnel and equipment to a trailer, which was set up so that the bank could reopen in two days.  We began reconstruction on the building, coordinated insurance claims, and worked with bank personnel on repairs to equipment, fixtures, and repair/replacement of furnishings.  The newly remodeled branch open within two weeks.  Our quick response time and thorough renovation process provided a quick solution for the branch.
