building

The Administrative Services Center (ASC) is home to New Albany Floyd County Schools' business, special education, curriculum, and human resources offices, as well as a warehouse. Its offices and warehouse combined house more than 31,000 square feet of space.

 

In 2000, the ASC joined in a corporation-wide effort to intensify energy efficiency efforts with the addition of new modular boilers and high efficiency chillers. This effort, encouraged and aided by school administration, accelerated the existing energy management practices of the corporation and included many exciting developments. Partnering with the ENERGY STAR program, all of the schools and buildings in the corporation began working to earn the ENERGY STAR individually. The ASC earned its first ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance in 2008. This was the result of developments such as remote scheduling of all of the air units, inside lighting, and outdoor parking and security lighting with the use of Andover Continuum, an integrated automation system. This system ensures equipment reliability, keeps operating costs down, and enables efficient use of resources. Insulated roofing and light sensors for office space were also included in the technological developments.

 

Technology was only one part of these improvements. Energy audits identified areas that could also be improved. Staff education encouraged good habits such as turning off unused lights, unplugging unused electronics, and simple awareness of waste such as leaky faucets. The corporation also began tracking utility bills in a new program, Metrix, and sending out monthly reports to building operators and administrators to promote constant awareness of energy usage.

 

The Administrative Services Center has found EPA's ENERGY STAR Guidelines for Energy Management to be extremely helpful in its goal of reducing the use of natural resources and avoiding expense to the corporation. Serving both the community and its students, the ASC and the other buildings and schools in the program have worked toward the ultimate goal of ensuring an environmentally friendly corporation for the benefit of students, staff, and the community.
