4300 Wildwood Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30339
4300 Wildwood is a
three-story, Class-A office building located in Atlanta, Georgia. Constructed
in 1997, the building is owned and managed by Columbia Property Trust.
When Columbia began managing the building in 2007, its ENERGY STAR energy performance score was 39. Over the following four years, Columbia implemented energy conservation initiatives that raised the building's ENERGY STAR score to 79, and will continue to seek further improvements.
Several projects undertaken in recent years have contributed to the building's increased efficiency. Some of the most significant improvements fall under the categories of lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), including the following projects:
-- Installed light-emitting diodes (LED) on the pole lights located on the surface parking lot and upper level of the parking deck. The 400 watt bulbs were exchanged for 50 watt LED bulbs, with an estimated payback period of less than one year.
-- On the first and third floors, replaced existing fixtures including three ballasts and six bulbs, 60 watt each, with one electronic ballast and two T-8 28 watt bulbs, with a project payback period of less than two years.
-- Installed motion sensors in the open areas, private offices, conference rooms, tenant specialty areas, and engineering rooms throughout the entire building, with a payback period of less than two years.
-- Installed carbon dioxide-monitoring controls, as well as variable frequency drives (VFDs) for the condenser water pumps, cooling tower fan motors, outside air fan, and toilet exhaust system.
-- Additional measures included upgrading the Energy Management System (EMS) hardware and software and optimizing controls and schedules for efficient operation. Existing HVAC zones were also disaggregated into smaller zones in the Energy Management System.
