Fluor Center 5-6
352 Halton Road
Greenville, SC 29607
Fluor Center 5-6 is a typical office building with approximately 121,000 square feet, roof top air handling units that utilize electric heat, and direct expansion refrigerant-based cooling. Over the past 2 years, the Fluor Greenville Campus developed business cases to improve these buildings, improve their energy efficiency, lower their operating cost, and support the focus of One Fluor, Fluor?s Sustainability Report, and ENERGY STAR.
Fluor?s Facility Management (FM) Division developed the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Guideline practice 000.653.8801 in 2009 to identify and highlight the "low hanging fruit" for energy efficiency efforts. In junction with Fluor?s Real Estate & Office Services team, Fluor FM implemented cost-effective projects, following good business practices, with the result of the Greenville Campus buildings Centers 3, 4, 5, and 6 applying and earning ENERGY STAR certification in 2011.
These practices were the bottom line solutions of integrating the programs for recycling, reducing energy use, and conserving water in our everyday practices. The Greenville campus was able to capitalize on local incentives and rebates from Duke Energy to offset the improved efficiency costs of the following upgrade projects completed on the campus since 2009:
1. Retrofitted lighting in open offices from outdated 3-lamp, T12 fixtures to 2-lamp, T8 fixtures in Centers 3, 4, 5, and 6, which reduced power usage by 40 percent while providing the same light levels.
2. Upgraded lighting in closed-door offices from (4) 2?x?4, 3-lamp, T12 fixtures with (4) 2?x2?, 2-lamp, T8 fixtures, which reduced power used by 66 percent while providing the same light levels.
3. Replaced end-of-service-life roof top air handling units (RTUs) with updated high efficiency RTUs. The costs associated with the higher efficiency units were offset by utility rebates.
5. Replaced end-of-useful-life roofing with new white roofing, which reduces heat gain in summer months to reduce cooling load on the RTUs.
6. Replaced end-of-useful-life parking lot lighting with new high efficiency lights that are not only more efficient but do not cause light pollution in the surrounding areas.
Fluor?s Sustainability Manager tracked the buildings in EPA's ENERGY STAR measurement and tracking tool, Portfolio Manager, to confirm measurement and verification of the business case return on investment time lines.
Extra efforts have been taken to share the success stories, and educate and present to our worldwide employees and clients our accomplishments from working with ENERGY STAR, the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Guideline, and Fluor?s Sustainability Committee Goals.
Fluor?s Greenville campus recently earned the ENERGY STAR for superior energy performance from EPA for Centers 3, 4, 5, and 6. The ENERGY STAR certification for Centers 3, 4, 5, and 6 was earned due to numerous sustainability initiatives over the years that resulted in the improved efficiency of these buildings.
