The key to program achievement is quality assurance. Adopting the BPI program approach means developing a skilled, credentialed workforce that can deliver results using independent, effective oversight.
So how can we help you with your programs?
Build your program's quality assurance upon BPI's nationally recognized standards. BPI develops technical standards using an open, transparent, consensus-based process built on sound building science.
In cooperation with leading building science stakeholders – contractors, product manufacturers, building scientists, public program professionals and educators – we have established nationally recognized standards in performance contracting for both single-family homes and multi-unit residential structures.
BPI is accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as a developer of American National Standards.
Require technicians in your program to earn BPI certification. BPI certified professionals are individuals who have proven their skills, meeting our stringent, nationally recognized standards by passing both written and field examinations. Ongoing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) keep these elite individuals on top of emerging issues, technologies and best practices.
Using the house-as-a-system approach, they conduct comprehensive whole-home assessments that go beyond a traditional energy audit to establish performance levels and trace problems to the root cause. Then they prescribe and prioritize real solutions based on proven building science. At the end of each job, a second assessment confirms the desired performance improvements have been achieved.
The result is work that’s done right – the first time. Energy efficiency is enhanced for the long-term, while occupant comfort, health and safety are not just protected, but often dramatically improved.
BPI GoldStar Contractors
When you make the BPI GoldStar Contractor program a requirement for contracting companies participating in your programs, you get the accountability you need.
Each and every job that BPI GoldStar contractors complete is documented and the information is archived at the company and submitted to BPI. Why? Because participation in, and compliance with, our quality assurance protocols is a requirement for all BPI GoldStar Contractors.
Work with BPI to develop a full program approach for independent review and program risk reduction.
Developing a quality assurance program from scratch is costly and time consuming – and you may not have the human resources available to run it on an ongoing basis moving forward. We oversee and administer third party quality assurance services, giving you an important additional layer of risk protection.
Our nationwide quality assurance protocols include test in test out procedures, data collection requirements, customer satisfaction procedures and other measures to ensure work was completed according to BPI standards. We can tailor QA inspections and other measures to meet your program’s needs.
