Minimum Energy Performance - EAp2

Implementation Natural Ventilation Design
  • Adopted an integrative design approach that promoted synergies between disciplines and resulted in a natural ventilation design with significantly reduced energy costs
  • Installed natural ventilation
  • Installed radiant floor heating and cooling
  • Installed LED lighting throughout
  • Installed daylight energy harvesting
  • Installed high-efficiency motors with variable frequency drives
  • Installed high-efficiency gas boilers
  • Installed quality insulation, windows and doors
    • Required to reduce energy costs by at least 18% from ASHRAE/IESNA 90.1-1999
    • Actual design performs 54% better in regulated energy cost ($13,700 per year) compared to ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-1999 reference building ($30,200 per year)
    • This equates to a savings of 66 tons CO2 per year
