The University of Alabama School of Medicine resolved to pursue a campus energy usage reduction study. As part of the audit, we analyzed the following projects:

  • HVAC conversion to VAV
  • Airflow Reductions
  • Temperature Setback
  • Unoccupied Airflow Setbacks
  • Heat Recovery Chillers
  • Lighting Retrofit and Contents
  • Fume Hood Airflow Reductions

Projects were identified such that when implemented will result in energy savings for UAB with a 1.8 year payback. Additionally we assisted UAB in setting sustainable design guidelines for future laboratory projects.
