SUNY Plattsburgh Initiated a sustainability study prior to renovations of Macomb Hall. The goal of the study was to determine the best possible solutions for replacing the Mechanical and Electrical Systems in compliance with Executive order 88, Energy efficiency was a driving factor in the energy modeling and the final system selections.
JSE was responsible for the MEP Energy Modeling for the SUNY Plattsburgh Macomb Hall Renovation Project. The project included three separate studies taking place at the schematic, Design development, and Construction document phase of the project. Close coordination with the design team members was essentially to reaching the sustainability goals for the project. It was determined by JSE that an LED lighting replacement would contribute to the most significant energy savings for the project. Significant mechanical replacements including Energy recovery units, exhaust, make-up air, and ductless split systems were determined to be significant improvements in-line with the sustainability goals of the project.
