Our Mission

Founded in 2014, Optimized Systems is an Omaha-based specialty engineering and energy sustainability firm. Our primary mission is to help building owners and managers achieve and maintain the optimum balance of occupant comfort and safety, building performance and energy efficiency. As a fully-independent firm, we don’t sell equipment or building automation systems and we are not a subsidiary of any design or engineering firm. We have no competing interests. Our recommendations are always based on what’s best for you and your building occupants. That is our only focus.

Our Culture

Optimized Systems understands the impact climate change is having on our planet and our future.  Reducing energy use is typically the first step towards achieving your emission reduction goals.  With short ROIs, the efficiencies gained can quickly move you closer to attaining your goals and the savings can be applied to future energy projects or renewables.

We also walk the talk.

Optimized Systems is committed to reducing our own emissions.  We have done several things to reduce our carbon footprint and strive to do more.

Who We Serve

In most situations, Optimized Systems works for and represents the building owner. Our independent and vendor-neutral approach assures owners that our recommendations are unbiased and not economically incentivized. Regardless of who we are working for – owners, design teams or construction managers – we are known for our respectful, transparent and problem-solving team approach.


Optimized Systems puts reputation before revenue. That is why we take a true partnership approach to every relationship and a teaming approach to every project. We make your team a part of our team. We also believe in full transparency and, because we are totally independent, our recommendations are never economically incentivized. Your best interests are our only interests. That is our promise to every client.
