Energy Conservation Measures

(Translational Testing and
Training Laboratories, Inc.)
Engineer: McKenney’s, Inc.
McKenney’s implemented a wide range of energy-saving initiatives for
building operating systems at T3 Labs in Atlanta, Georgia.
Energy costs for the facility averaged more than $13 and 684 kBTU per
square foot annually. McKenney’s believed it could reduce electric, gas
and water costs by implementing sound engineering principles.
The team at McKenney’s initiated projects incrementally to align building
operating systems with facility requirements. Airflow was reduced by 30
to 50 percent in many areas served by the HVAC system, in part because
equipment operating hours were cut in half. Reset schedules were
initiated when more occupants were in the building and were
recalculated to accommodate more reasonable temperatures and
Components were repaired or replaced as needed to resolve building
pressurization issues. The team also added water meters, harvested
condensate water and used bdoc® Business Intelligence for Buildings to
