The staff of SCS Engineers was retained to provide modeling services for a remodeled university student center.
A life-cycle cost analysis was conducted to evaluate a number of energy conservation measures:
An energy model was also developed, helping the school achieve the maximum possible points under LEED v2.2 Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance.
Follow-up measurement and verification services revealed a number of additional energy-saving opportunities that were previously undetected. Overall, these efforts helped reduce the student center’s utility costs by 45% compared to a building modeled to minimum code requirements.
