Design services for this 297,000 sq. ft. building comprised a comprehensive rehabilitation of HVAC and electrical systems. The project included the replacement of air handling equipment, HVAC controls, heat exchanges, pumps and associated mechanical equipment. The project also included construction of a new central chiller plant and cooling tower, replacement of primary electrical switchgear and upgraded emergency generation capacity for the building. Lilker developed phasing plans for change over and replacement of SAC units for chilled water air handlers, and developed a coordination/phasing plan for replacement of primary electrical systems, minimizing the impact to the campus operations.
Lilker LES Energy Solutions, performed an ASHRAE Level II energy and water audit of the eighteen-story SUNY College of Optometry building, The energy and water audit resulted in the recommendation of 25 energy and water conservation measures, expected to reduce energy and water costs by over $391,000 annually.
