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.
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.
