Hamilton County - Energy Upgrades

Beginning in 2011, the Hamilton County Facilities Department embarked on an aggressive energy conservation project that included six major downtown buildings encompassing 2.36 million square feet of managed space. Work included LED lighting upgrades, DDC controls upgrades, and low flow plumbing fixture upgrades in all buildings, plus domestic hot water solar panel systems, high-efficiency hot water fully condensing boilers, data center consolidation, high-efficiency chillers and VRF cooling, and high efficiency domestic hot water heaters. During the entire process, an interactive and open design team was used. The project required the facility team to negotiate foreseen and unforeseen challenges while  meeting payback guidelines.
