Performance Contracting

Performance Contracting offers public entities an innovative option for implementing capital improvement projects. Illinois State legislation (105 ILCS 5/19b) has enabled schools, universities and other public entities to use Performance Contracting as an alternative to the traditional architect led, design/bid/build approach. Performance Contracting is the method of creating a project by monetizing energy and operational savings over a 20 year period, and using this financial benefit to justify the project.

How is Midwest a Unique Choice for You?

When School District’s look to upgrade their facilities, they typically review their project needs and then determine which construction delivery method best meets their needs. Until now, school districts were left to consider only two options to tackle facility related problems:

  1. The Traditional “Bid/Spec” method- this is the most common method that Illinois schools have used for years. It involves hiring an architect or engineer to develop a design, that is eventually “bid out” to contractors to do the work.
  2. The ESCO method- this approach has been available in Illinois since 1993. It involves procuring a company that serves as a “broker” for design, products, and/or contracting which are aimed at providing solutions which generate energy savings.

Midwest Mechanical can now offer a new option for the District to consider for Facility Improvements that is different from the Traditional “bid/spec” and ESCO approach.

Midwest Mechanical is made up of professionals that have seen the evolution of construction in public schools. The Midwest Value proposition was built around listening to the K12 market and delivering what schools were asking for. The Midwest offering is unique in its ability to offer three key elements that maximize value to Illinois Schools. The following chart shows how Midwest is able to utilize our vendor neutrality, In-House Labor, In-House Design, and Software as a Service to provide the Best, Fastest, and Most Cost Effective project for your school district:

Elements Unique to Midwest Mechanical

A Solution that Offers the Best Project Delivery

Midwest Mechanical clearly stands alone when it comes to offering school districts accountability. Midwest is unique in its ability to self-perform everything from system design to system installation, all with in-house labor. This translates into Midwest being able to provide a complete solution for which they are 100% accountable for. There is no outside consultant, or third party consultant to blame design or coordination issues on. There is no subcontractor to blame labor scheduling problems on. 100% of the accountability is with Midwest Mechanical.

Our ability to provide 100% accountability like no other offering, provides a significant level of comfort for our school customers. It makes problem solving much easier and less stressful.

A Project Delivery process that is the Fastest and most agile

Midwest is able to move a project from Idea to Completion faster than anyone in the market. We have the ability to do this because of two distinct reasons that set our company apart:

  1. Midwest has the Design resource
  2. Midwest has the Craft Labor resource

By having the Design resource as part of their staff, Midwest is able to quickly develop and design projects based upon the need of the customer. Midwest is in full control of the design resource versus relying on the scheduling of a subcontractor. This flexibility allows Midwest to respond very quickly to customer requests.

Midwest Design Mechanical is unique in the marketplace in that we have union pipefitters, sheetmetal workers, and electricians on the payroll and ready to be deployed on projects. This means that we are able to control labor deployment and work flow much better than if we were reliant on a subcontractor.

Design/Build is more efficient than the Traditional approach, when it comes to delivering a project in a tight timeframe. By doing multiple tasks in tandem, large amounts of cycle time can be saved.

The Most Cost Effective Choice to Implement a Project

The Midwest approach is unique in its ability to deliver the following to you:

  1. Midwest has removed the layer of costs which are prevalent from ESCO’s or an Architect led project. Because the cost structure is so streamlined to the customer we deliver the Most Economical method to implement construction projects.
    • Midwest employees do the installation and design work for all Heating, Ventilation, Air conditioning, and Electrical work. No marked up subcontracts.
    • Our cost is the “lowest common denominator” when presented to our customers. Because we use “in-house” labor, there is no more cost effective way to implement a project.
  2. Our pricing approach ensures No change orders! Project price is guaranteed. Our project development process ensures that there is no scope creep or added cost to the project.
  3. Midwest is vendor neutral.
    • Midwest will install products which are the best economic and technical fit for the customer, which saves time and money.
    • Our Vendor Neutral commitment ensures that all products will be purchased in a competitive environment, resulting in the lowest delivered cost to our customers.

One of the attributes which makes Midwest Unique, is our ability to self-perform Design/Build projects. There was an extensive study completed by Penn State University which compared the various construction methods for public sector projects. The chart below is a compilation of the data which shows how Design/Build is more effective than either the Traditional(design/bid/build), and Construction Manager at-risk. The data supports the fact that Design/Build is better, faster, and more cost effective than the other methods.
