1 The Caroline Carpenter House Restoration- Greening the Soul of a Tired Old Victorian Marc Fournier Director, Plant Operations & Sustainability Lasell College

2  Located in Newton, MA ~12 miles west of Boston  1600 students  575,000 sf - 55 buildings – 24 medium sized buildings & 31 Victorian homes  40 acres  Nestled in the middle of a historic district and residential neighborhood  Well known for our Fashion Design programs  Lasell Village, a senior housing community & sister institution, with an emphasis on active, intellectually enriched living Our College

3  Named for Caroline Carpenter, who worked at Lasell College for 30 years as a teacher and preceptress.  Built in 1890  6178 square feet  1.3 acre lot  Located in the Auburndale Historic District  Restored Summer 2013  Total project cost ~$490,000 The House

4  MetroWest Contracting Corp.- GC, demolition, carpentry, plastering, painting  A.J. Roberto Mechanical Co.- heating & hot water systems, HVAC controls  Stained Glass Works by Michael Willard- leaded & stained glass restoration  Air Quality Experts, Inc. asbestos abatement & decontamination services Project Partners

5  MacFloors, Inc.- carpet and vinyl flooring  Lutron Electronics- lighting controls & LED’s  Norman E. Day, Inc.- electrical  Anderson Insulation- insulation  Mark’s Moving & Storage- furniture moving & storage  E. L. Harvey & Sons- construction & demolition debris recycling  Plant Operations Staff- bathroom & gas plumbing, HVAC controls, wireless access points, internet access for heating & hot water system Project Partners

6  All interior spaces were worn, tired, and in need of repair  Historic features were damaged or covered over Before

7  Antiquated, inefficient heating system ran open all winter long- temperature in rooms was controlled by opening and closing windows  Inefficient electrical & plumbing fixtures Before

8 Asbestos Abatement  Vinyl asbestos tile was removed at the beginning of the project

9  New Water Service  Old- the old, undersized water service was replaced

10  All construction debris was either separated and recycled on site, or was sent to E. L. Harvey’s construction & demolition debris recycling facility in Westborough, MA for sorting - an average of 85% of C&D debris is recycled at the facility C&D Recycling

11  New Insulation  Old

12  New technology:  Exterior walls- R13 cellulose enclosed blown insulation  Underside of all roofing systems- R29.6 to R37 Icynene open cell spray foam insulation Insulation  Old technology: none

28  New Boilers & Hot Water  Old

29  New HVAC Controls  Old (None)

30  New technology:  Lochinvar Knight gas fired boilers- 151,000 BTU’s each, 96% efficient operation, modulate from 20% capacity to 100% capacity to maintain temperature to keep fuel costs low and efficiency high  Indirect hot water provided by the boilers- 67 gallon storage tank  Grundfos Magna 40 pumps- modulate water flow throughout the building depending on heating load to reduce the electrical load during the heating operation & help maintain a comfortable building with minimal temperature swings Boilers & Hot Water

31  New technology (continued):  Johnson Facility Explorer controls system- monitors 20 heating zones & is capable of remote access monitoring, scheduling, trend data, & alarm outputs  The supervisory controller (FX60) speaks to all building automation languages & enables Lasell College's facility staff to monitor & access other building automation systems on the HVAC network  Control valves modulate to maintain water flow to each individual zone and maintain precise temperature control to prevent drastic temperature swings. Boilers & Hot Water

32  Old technology:  2 Hydrotherm hot water boilers- 300,000 BTU’s each  Zone valves left open during the whole heating season  Manual controls- opening & closing window sashes

33  New LED’s & Lighting Controls  Old (None)

34  Can save over 80% of lighting energy usage based on high and low end dimming strategy  Uses Lutron’s wireless Radio Powr Savr occupancy sensor to assign multiple fixtures to adjust and customize light levels by floor  Wireless retrofit solution that does not required additional wiring Digital Luminaires Stairwell fixtures are energy saving retrofit solutions that automatically adjusts light output based on occupancy Lighting Controls- Lutron Stairwell Family

35 Description Stairwell LED fixtures are ENERGY STAR Qualified utilizing LED’s as the light source with lower power usage and less maintenance (lamps). Benefits 2’ or 4’, 4000K LED with dimming to 1% 17.5 watts Can save over 80% of energy usage Typical Applications Stairwells, corridors, hallways LED Lutron Stairwell Fixture

36  “Cree CR22 Trouffers  22 watts per fixture  Replace 2’x2’ 64+ watt fluorescent fixtures  Amazing light quality and light spread  $60 utility rebate LED’s

37  New technology:  SensorSwitch WSD SA  Set to either Occupancy or vacancy  Installed in the kitchen, laundry, living room, and bathrooms Lighting Controls  Old (None)
