USGBC-NCC GBCI Course #NCC-303: Retrofitting Existing Buildings to Improve Energy Efficiency
Presented by: Harry Sim, CEO, Cypress Envirosystems and Zach Gentry, Chief Strategy Officer, Adura Technologies
GBCI, AIA/CES (HSW) Learning Units: 1.0 Hours
Compared with new facilities, existing buildings and plants often have legacy equipment which waste energy, require more maintenance, and incur more downtime. A complete rip-out and replace strategy is often cost prohibitive and highly disruptive to ongoing operations and occupants. New non-invasive technologies allow for retrofits that take minutes to install and deliver substantial savings with investment paybacks of less than 18 months. This 60-minute continuing education course provides an overview of cost-effective HVAC, lighting, steam, and compressed air retrofit strategies to improve energy efficiency and minimize operational disruptions. A case study describes specific methods that resulted in retrofitting a 300,000 square-foot office building in 8 days at 80% less project cost and a payback of 16 months.
