We’re proud members of the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA), and even more proud since receiving the E. Robert Kent Award. The E. Robert Kent Award is for acknowledging management ideas that help companies and their profits grow, which is exactly what The BP Group team did. With the goal of providing high quality services to our clients, we built a business management tool called PIPES. PIPES stands for process, information, portal, enabling, success. It’s capable of streamlining processes, improving employee practices and providing customers with a consistent experience. Each capability matches who we are as a company, innovative and committed to customer satisfaction. The combination of collaborating with ATX Advisory Services and working off of the MCAA planning for profitability framework, resulted in a tool that can lead employees through important procedures, eliminate redundant processes, help on-board and train employees, and increase accountability.

PIPES is rooted in Microsoft technologies, making it easily maintainable and cross platform compatible. The innovative makeup of this tool allows for increased productivity and cost-effectiveness, two crucial factors in today’s competitive market. The BP Group has grown significantly through the years, and strives to keep growing. Sometimes it takes going back to the basics to create something new. Today’s technology and MCAA’s original principals has created an inspiring and award winning tool, literally.

John Losey, Robert Barbera, John Fanneron, and Steven Heiderstadt were present to accept the award, and two other special guests made an appearance as well. Retired NBA player Shaquille O’Neal and American singer-songwriter and actress Sheryl Crow took some pictures with our very own.

BP Green

Today is Earth Day, a day for celebrating our planet and supporting environmental protection. Here at The BP Group, we celebrate every day through BP Sustainable Solutions. Sustainable Solutions is designed to increase energy-efficiency in commercial, residential and institutional properties throughout the New York metropolitan area. The services provided include auditing building systems, assessing building operations and identifying sustainable alternatives, all in which provide building owners and managers with the knowledge of which areas of the building need improvement. These improvements will result in cost savings, but most importantly, energy savings.

When it comes to alternative solutions, our experts look into mechanical systems, chillers, lighting, boilers, water efficiency, windows, thermostats, and other areas of energy loss to find the best way to lower the energy being consumed. When it comes down to it, there are many alternative solutions that can be put into place to protect our planet, not just when it comes to HVAC systems. A switch as simple as changing your outdoor lighting to solar powered lighting can make a significant impact.

The BP Group has that “green” mentality, and it stays with us long beyond Earth Day. We will continue to do our part and contribute to our planet by using “green” products and LEED compliance. Take action today to protect our planet!

Turning Tragedy to Triumph

Tragedy to triumph with team TeamGr8Dads

Positivity breeds happiness. This happiness transcends through the individuals we come across throughout our lifetime. Our technician, William Edwards has decided to make a difference in not only his daughters lives but single, striving fathers alike.

The movement is called TeamGr8Dads. The TeamGr8Dads movement started with the combination of William’s hobby printing and pressing T­shirts and being a single parent of two girls.

Tragedy to triumph with team TeamGr8DadsWhen asked how and why this organization was formed William went on to say, “When my wife passed away six years ago, I was forced to find the strength within to take care of my two young girls alone. In the digital day and age we live in social media has allowed the chance for people to see a little of me first hand, the day­-to-­day things that I do with my girls, how I interact with them through videos and photos. People stamped me a great dad for things I was doing before my wife passed. Although I feel I’m an amazing father, I know there are others out there struggling each day just like me. With the TeamGr8Dads movement it’s more so a way of motivating, strengthening, and building our future and present parents. I sell hats and shirts to finance my annual Father’s Day BBQ and when people wear the hats and shirts they feel like they are a part of something bigger than themselves. In the future I hope to expand my ideas to mentoring workshops for single fathers/parents. The bottom line is, it’s just a positive movement for uplifting people”.

It takes courage to turn the negatives into positives. By salvaging the experiences that we hold close we find the strength to continue our journey.

We applaud William Edwards for his inspirational, selfless efforts to contribute to greater good.
