Microsoft Word - ATLANTA FDA FACILITY Retro-Cx Case Study.docxGetting Energy Efficiency Approval Through Retro-Commissioning

The Federal Drug Administration’s Atlanta facility underwent retro-commissioning – the commissioning process applied to existing buildings – with the goal of implementing low-to-no-cost energy savings opportunities. Having had two major additions, the facility is actually three buildings. Each building has its own heating and cooling plants. SES evaluated the facility’s energy consumption, performed energy audits, and coordinated with Georgia Power to identify utility incentives. SES’s retro-commissioning resulted in controls optimizations strategies that could amount to $24,000 in energy savings per year.

Microsoft Word - TOWER ONE TOWER EAST Energy Case Study.docxBetter Living Through Energy Efficiency

An energy audit by SES uncovered a wide variety of energy conservation opportunities at the Tower One Tower East Retirement Facility in New Haven, Connecticut. The age of the buildings (they were built in 1969 and 1980 with minimum upgrades since), their size (286,000 SF total),  and their high occupancy and 24-hour operation made the towers excellent candidates for reducing energy use and costs. Through site visits and extensive reviews of HVAC systems and controls, SES produced recommendations for equipment replacement and optimization strategies that could amount to $52,000 in energy savings per year.

Creating a new, high-efficiency space within a 1926 neoclassical revival building was a challenge. The architecturally significant building envelope had to be maintained but also meet minimum energy performance requirements. SES provided consulting services the first LEED®-certified multi-family residence in Connecticut.
