300 Kimball is a premiere 408,000-square-foot Class-A office building.  Originally constructed in 2001 as a headquarters facility, the building features numerous on-site amenities, such as a large cafeteria, separate store units for tenants, and ample parking.  Additional renovation plans include a redesign of the lobby and cafeteria and the addition of an on-site gym.

The building received ENERGY STAR certification with a score of 93, and will be receiving a LEED Silver certification for an Existing Building.

The Transwestern Sustainability Services team performed an energy audit on the building, which identified several energy conserving measures described below:

-       Reduced air handling run times up to 19 hours per week.  Thermostat recalibration program reduced the compressor run time by approximately 75% on one of the air handling units.

-       Shut off HVAC to vacant areas.  27 VAV boxes were commanded into the unoccupied mode, shutting off primary air valves, heating coils and series fans.

-       Eliminated outdoor air intake during unoccupied time periods.

-       Added a time schedule to the building automation system schedule to operate toilet exhaust fans only during occupied periods.

-       Increased VAV box temperatures set point dead-bands.

-       Energized minimum outdoor air intake duct heaters.

-       Reprogrammed receiving room exhaust fan to run only when room lights are turned on.

-       Installed thermostat on restroom heater to control it from continuous operation.

-       Installed low flow aerators in restroom faucets.

In addition, the maintenance staff and tenants have been trained to consider energy consumption in their daily routines.




"There are many things well-educated building engineers, tenants and cleaning crews can do to help conserve energy.  EPA's ENERGY STAR program is a great way to get the information you need to make the right energy decisions.  We just have to think energy savings every day."

-- Gary Le Francois, SVP, Director of Engineering, Transwestern
