Steve Leight, PE, CxA

Director of Commissioning

“We dig into the details to make sure that the buildings we design work efficiently and in the ways in which owners, operators and occupants need them to work.”

Steve manages the day-to-day operations of the commissioning group, whose goals include improving the operation and performance of both new and existing buildings. The commissioning group aims for consistency and quality results, and is always looking for ways to improve its efficiency and showcase the benefits that it brings to our projects. That is accomplished through troubleshooting and solving problems with the design and construction teams, and then documenting projects as they are completed.

Among Steve’s accomplishments are forming a new national energy management group focused on addressing energy efficiency and operability in existing buildings. In addition to helping write the guidelines on the process, he was instrumental in developing a comprehensive exam to certify qualified providers.
