Jackson, Mississippi (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
David Cantrill, CxGBS® Mississippi branch manager, attained advanced licensure to lead Jackson office as the Commissioning Authority for the development of the new University of Mississippi Medical Center’s School of Medicine.
Cantrill earned the distinction by meeting the hefty experience requirements and passing the professional engineer (PE) exam. Cantrill’s extensive experience and CXGBS’ unique green building tools won them the commissioning contract for UMMC.
“David’s PE status acknowledges his mastery of engineering principles and practices explains Christine Miley, co-founder and CEO, CxGBS. This engineering knowledge provides him a solid foundation to build his commissioning skills; how all building systems interact and how those interactions affect building operation, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, and project delivery.”
An IDIQ contractor for commissioning services with the State of Mississippi Bureau of Buildings with a comprehensive green building for schools portfolio, CxGBS® will perform Holistic Commissioning® during the programming, design, construction, and warranty phases of Mississippi’s flagship medical school.
