Nearly 100% of the 120+ complex lab projects completed have been in operating buildings or on operating campuses with utility interconnections.
Gonda is a major research lab building on the main UCLA campus built in 1998. The project goals were to achieve a 50% energy use reduction with a payback of seven years or less. The project scope consisted of retro-commissioning with SkySpark analytics; Level III ASHRAE energy audit with eQUEST energy model and contractor price quotes for LADWP incentives; BAS supervisory control architecture, standard development and control sequence optimization. These energy conservation measures will also significantly reduce maintenance costs in both equipment and labor. Addressing humidity control in vivarium spaces to minimize impact on animal health and experimental results was also a primary project focus that has been successfully executed with Altura Analytics M&V protocols.https://alturaassociates.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=14653&action=edit#
