The Hospital for Joint Diseases has completed an investment grade energy audit and identified the best investments for achieving energy savings.
The team has also begun to retro commission the HVAC system to correct deficiencies and bring the system back to the design intent.
The Director of Energy Services has been assigned to be onsite at this location two days a week for advanced staff training and to oversee retro commissioning. Additionally, the team has executed a contract for the design of a new chiller plant.
Working with the ENERGY STAR program and participating in campaigns like the National Building Competition has been instrumental in communicating the team’s message about energy efficiency and environmental sustainability throughout the organization. The best practices shared through the ENERGY STAR partnership form the basis for the employee training program and the team views its key metrics in Portfolio Manager across all hospital sites each month.
The team has promoted participation in the competition via the building’s website and through e-mail blasts to employees. The hospital has been featured in several newsletter articles since joining the 2011 ENERGY STAR National Building Competition. The team has also hung very large banners on the front entrance of the building announcing participation in the competition.
