ENERGY MANAGER, District of North Vancouver
“We’re wrapping up our third project in almost a year – a control upgrade at Ops Centre. It’s working so much better, and we’re already seeing dramatic savings: 40% over the summer. Mike and the crew literally moved in and got to know the people at the building; they have a real sense of ownership. They’ve been super responsive. The people on site are fantastic, and the programmers on the Island will make a change immediately. They’re earning me so much good will! I’ve made promises and they’ve made them all come true. They’ve been spectacular. I hope to work with them again, right away.”


“We began working with Kerr Controls a couple of years ago and the professionalism and quality of their staff and work has meant we keep coming back. With a recent controls upgrade, we are seeing some excellent energy savings: 25% month on month when compared to last years consumption. Chad and his crew worked around the challenges we faced and were ready to move when we had our approvals. We look forward to building our partnership over the coming years.”


Since the introduction, set up and running of the DDC program here at Sussex Place, Kerr Controls has been an integral part of its success. The operation, management and resources provided by Kerr Controls have been most excellent. Their approach, professionalism, knowledge and response time continue to be the most valuable tools for a client.”
