Energy Efficient Buildings

  • Exploring innovative new technologies with an emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental stewardship is important to our clients. Read below for some examples of how it's possible.

    2.0 University Place

    Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

    Project: Highest efficiency required to attain LEED Platinum certification

    Product: IQHC Active Chilled beams and Pinnacle DOAS

    Payoff: Daily energy tracking reveals the building ranks in the upper 22-percentile of Energy Star Program facilities nationwide and it exceeds ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Standards by 44%.
    Chilled beams provide a continual convection of air comfort benefits with no drafts, no noise and stable temperature tolerances of ±1°F.

    Raleigh Transit Operations Center

    Raleigh, North Carolina

    Project: LEED Platinum public transit facility that operates at 50% better than ASHRAE 90.1

    Product: Flexicool IQSA Chilled Beams and 3 dual wheel Pinnacle DOAS units

    Payoff: North Carolina mandates that all government buildings over 20,000 sq ft. exceed ASHRAE 90.1 energy efficiency standards by at least 30%. Providing continuous outdoor air to a 110,470 sq. ft. space like this and still meeting such a high efficiency standard demanded more than energy recovery. The units provide all the necessary dehumidification during the cooling/ latent load periods, as well as humidification during the winter season. Most importantly, they do it efficiently, using the maximum possible recovered energy from the building exhaust.
