Welcome to Warthan Group, your powerful partner in commercial property systems, training and consulting.

Warthan Group seminars and workshops cover a wide range of topics and
will improve your commercial facility and the effectiveness of your operations team!

    Indoor Air Quality

    There is more to IAQ than meets the eye or nose or ears. It takes understanding, teamwork, coordination, and planning. The approach combines design, construction, commissioning, occupation, long term maintenance, and management's on-going actions.

    Energy Management and Power Quality

    Energy conservation, utility consumption, and efficiency, coupled with performance, make or break facility operations. All energy consuming systems have to be evaluated. Many questions need to be answered as one makes plans. Questions such as payback, new equipment or retrofit, internal maintenance or contract, and more must be entertained.

    Security and Protection

    Are your assets protected? Think about the 'what ifs'. Facility, equipment, and personnel security is not just an overseas concern. Protection takes understanding and a plan.

    Automation Systems and Controls

    Building Automation Systems are the key to any structural strategy, whether that strategy is for efficiency, cost cutting, security or the best of operations. But not all systems are alike. Let your BAS meet your needs. Know your needs.

Chillers, Cooling Towers and Water Treatment

Production of chilled water can be for human comfort, or processing, or both. How to produce it is another question? Do I want air cooled or water cooled? Do I want ground mounted or rooftop mounted? Which type of compressor will perform to my wants? What about single loop vs primary/secondary?....and more

Building heating systems: Air and Water

Facilities have heating needs. What works for me? Do I want air or hot water? What about steam? Where from and how moved? Will steam be better than hot water? Is there a cost factor?

Learn how to diagnose, manage and tune your commercial heating systems for maximum efficiency. Warthan Group will take the mystery out of your sky-high heating bills and show you how to manage your heating plant at peak efficiency for decades into the future.

Ventilation, Fan Systems and Air Balance

Buildings are living breathing mechanisms, inhale and exhale, intake and exhaust, supply and return, primary air, clean air and return, long duct and short, rooftop and ground, air handler and package. All of this and more make up the ventilation network.

We offer up-to-date training programs for your operations staff and property management teams.

Available Training Programs

The wide range of training programs we bring to you are a product of our strong network with other training and consulting service providers like Throughput Management.

Warthan Group offers assistance and guidance in planning for facility recognition. This can be done by pre-planning workshops or step-by-step continuous assistance. Energy efficiency, improved design, and decreasing all costs, are the commandments of the 21st century.

Operations and Maintenance

Face the facts! Architects design and oversee construction, contractors build it, operators and managers keep it running and maintenance professionals keep it alive and healthy. Knowledge and continuing education support each of the aforementioned elements.
