Stanford Place One, located at 8055 East Tufts Avenue in the Denver Tech Center, has experienced several energy and cost-saving projects in the last few years. In 2003, the elevator system was retrofitted by upgrading the controls to solid state, which eliminated the motor generators and provided better control and reduced energy consumption. All of the light fixtures were converted to T8 and electronic ballasts throughout the building. In January 2007, the cooling tower was replaced with a more energy-efficient dual-cell unit that incorporated variable frequency drives (VFDs). Later in 2007, the four 75-horsepower supply fans were replaced with fixed-pitch blades and the motor controls were upgraded with VFDs.
In 2008, the building?s lighting system was further upgraded by replacing the existing 32-watt lamps with 28-watt lamps, offering a savings of 12 watts per fixture, or 42,000 watts overall. In addition, all garage light fixtures were replaced with new, lower-wattage, high-output fluorescent fixtures that have greater lumen output, but with reduced energy consumption. New LED exit fixtures replaced existing incandescent fixtures. Automatic faucets were installed in all restrooms and all toilets were converted to 1.6 gallons per flush. Occupancy sensors replaced light switches in all electric, telephone, and janitorial closets. As new tenant suites are built out, lighting occupancy sensors are installed in all offices.
The management staff members are continually working to incorporate new ideas that can lower operating costs and reduce the building?s carbon footprint. Using the Tracer Summit energy management system, hours of operation are fine tuned to further reduce operating costs while keeping tenant comfort in mind. To further reduce electrical usage and keep the peak demand down, a hybrid hot water boiler system with hot water coils in the air handlers was added for morning warm-up. In addition, a heat exchanger was installed so that a chiller is not needed on moderate days. An Angus Anywhere work order system is in place for the tenants so they can enter comfort calls via the Internet to display as a text message on the engineers' cell phones. The Angus system is also used to automatically display any scheduled preventative maintenance.
