The term "project management" refers to the implementation of appropriately planned and funded capital projects approved by the State Building Commission. These assignments are typically new building design or major maintenance on existing buildings
Project Management oversees the State Building Energy Management (SBEM) Program that was approved by the State Building Commission in August 1999. This plan is designed to be self-funded by using the savings generated from facility modifications to provide the investment capital required to fund projects and associated costs. SBEM provides leadership in the implementation of the Tennessee Energy Initiative (TEI). A strategic partnership was formed between SBEM, U.S. Department of Energy, and the Environment Protection Agency for the purpose of development and implementation of the plan.
