1 Center for Innovative School Facilities Brian Butler PE, LEED AP Associate Principal / Sr. Mechanical Engineer Long Range Facility Planning David Chesley PE, RCDD, LEED AP Associate Principal / Sr. Electrical Engineer

2 Track the age of mechanical & plumbing equipment to help plan for eventual replacement Review and modify HVAC equipment schedules Review and modify space heating and cooling set points Perform and track routine maintenance Track utility bills closely Building EUI comparisons LONG RANGE MECHANICAL PLANNING

3 Learn about technical assistance programs available from utility companies and state government Interview building staff to identify problem areas Conduct a recommissioning audit to identify low cost/no cost measures to make adjustments to the building’s existing systems Pre-bond planning LONG RANGE MECHANICAL PLANNING

4 Look at first cost, simple payback, and life cycle costs to help prioritize and determine ROI Consider potential capital improvements such as changing out boilers, chillers and control systems nearing the end of their service life Work with the design team to find strategies with multiple benefits LONG RANGE MECHANICAL PLANNING

5 BASELINE K12 ENERGY USE 52.1 kBTU/sf/yr

6 HIGH PERFORMANCE K12 ENERGY USE 10.8 kBTU/sf/yr Optimized envelope Lighting High efficiency HVAC distribution Widen thermal set points DHW reduction Plug load reduction
