Our history is one of constant evolution based on the needs of our customers and the visionary leadership of our CEO.  Founder and CEO Jerry Kettler, launched AIR Engineering and Testing in 1986 and formed Facility Performance Associates in 2008.  During this time, Jerry and his team of experienced engineers and consultants optimized hundreds of facilities and buildings from the design stage to full operation, and collaborated on the first Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified building in North Texas.  Since then, the combined companies of The Centre for Building Performance have contributed to nearly 200 LEED projects.

In 2009, both companies came together under the newly-created Centre for Building Performance in response to client requests for integrated, design, construction and operational services.  With over two decades of building optimization and service centric leadership under its belt, The Centre picked up momentum as the got-to organization for building owners, designers, and architects in the area of:

  • Sustainable building design, construction and operations
  • Safe, efficient facilities that increase return on investment
  • Increased environmental stewardship
  • Healthy environments for occupants
  • Protection and oversight for building owners

Mr. Kettler has personally combined more than 40 years of experience in the industry and creative vision to help develop industry guidelines and standards.  This has allowed The Centre to stay ahead of the curve and push the industry to higher standards delivering improved building performance, employee productivity and better business results for our clients.
