Helping Laurel Park Place Reduce Energy Use And Drive Operational Efficiencies
Industry: Commercial Property/Real Estate
In 2007, Laurel Park Place Office Center upgraded HVAC systems and controls with a focus on efficiency and sustainability. After winning BOMA and Energy Star awards, Laurel Park was looking to drive additional efficiencies and savings through visibility, analytics, and reporting.
Implemented Resolute Software to collect, trend, and analyze electric,
natural gas, and water utility data and existing BAS data to drive
Installed building-level electric, natural gas, and water meters, and electric submeters on HVAC equipment to establish an industry-accepted weather adjusted baseline by which to accurately measure savings.
Identified extreme inefficiencies in RTU scheduling and operation during unoccupied periods, which were corrected through optimized programming strategies.
Identified several RTU-level controller failures that we causing unintended and uncontrolled operations, wasting significant energy.
Implemented a Custom Insights page in the software that combines real-time RTU equipment status and space-temperature details in an easy-to-understand, intuitive layout.
Real-time verification through unlimited 15-minute interval data trending that space temperatures are within acceptable thresholds and that performance data is perpetually available for trouble.
"I was initially skeptical about savings and ROI projections associated with implementing the Resolute solution but, after seeing the results, I am now a believer."
