Description

Building Solutions was first engaged to conduct a campus facility audit in 2003, and updated that audit in 2006.  As a followup on the assessment, they also prepared an energy model and performed a detailed life-cycle cost analysis of alternative HVAC system options.  Also, they have provided bid specifications and project management and quality control assistance with roof replacements on the Gymnasium, Fine Arts building, and Counseling offices.

The Situation

The aged HVAC system in three major buildings was tracked in the periodic facility audits.  The timing of a major campus expansion became an issue in determining the ideal schedule for replacing this major HVAC system. An efficient central plant, chilled water-type system was under consideration, but important decisions regarding the plant would be influenced by the campus expansion and the relative costs/benefits of chilled water and direct expansion-type systems. 


Value Added by Building Solutions

The Building Solutions analysis determined that the school could recover the cost premium for air cooled chillers over a period of 4 years, rather than replacing their aged system with identical rooftop units, including the costs of routine maintenance and future replacements.
