McKenney’s implemented a broad-based energy-savings initiative at an
educational institution in suburban Georgia. The retrofit focused on four
of the university’s largest buildings.
The McKenney’s team upgraded lighting in two gymnasiums, replaced 16
HVAC systems, added four air-side economizers, and designed and
installed a Tridium® NiagaraAX web-based control system to integrate
with an existing Siemens® control system. Much of the work took place in
less than a month, resulting in a compressed schedule. Financing options
were provided but the university opted for self-funding.
To meet the timeline, McKenney’s pre-planned the entire project and
prefabricated components for the HVAC installation. Materials and
equipment were also staged on-site to save time. The web-based
controls included McKenney’s bdoc® ValidateTM online energy
management application to measure energy cost, consumption and

The retrofit, installation and controls implementation were completed on
time and on budget. Going forward, the university will be able to track its
energy savings through bdoc Validate.
