Al Cunningham, C.E.M.

Forward Motion Always is an independent Certified Energy Manager (CEM) and Building Automation systems technical and project management services resource.

FMA levers 36+ years of Al Cunningham’s experience in the design-build HVAC building automation systems contracting business to now serve the building management, building ownership and end-user side of the contracting/customer equation.

FMA listens to the customer then combines innovative and cost-conscious strategies to evaluate, develop and execute project goals to meet your buildings mandated and non-mandated current and long-term energy savings targets.

FMA provides turn-key or shared-responsibility deliverables with the customer for cost savings and/or customer in-house talent leverage and/or training.

Contact FMA with any of your Washington State Clean Building Act (HR-1257), Seattle Building Tune-Ups and Seattle Building Energy Benchmarking questions or requests. Building control system upgrades and retrofit projects based upon technology obsolescence also benefit from this project development and implementation strategy.

Successful projects withstand the test of time, not just the transition from in-warranty to the post-warranty service phase. FMA teams with our customers to provide key project development clarity for all project stakeholders throughout the entire project arc maximizing project returns for mutual long-term customer/contractor benefits and relations.
