LexisNexis Dayton Building Four
9443 Springboro Pike
Miamisburg, OH 45342
The LexisNexis campus, located just south of Dayton, Ohio, contains a total of six buildings on the Main Campus and three others within a short drive. Building Four (B4), originally built as the Corporate Headquarters, has undergone many retrofit projects over the years. Energy consumption is always evaluated when projects are considered, and executive management has always been supportive of projects that will reduce operating expenses.
Built in 1987, the building originally had T-8 lighting, which was recently upgraded to 25-watt T-8 lamps. A direct digital control (DDC) system and a water-side economizer were also original building components. In 1991, an energy management plan was instituted at the campus, and an employee awareness campaign was launched. The executive purchasing plan involves ENERGY STAR qualified equipment, including the phasing out of personal laser printers and the increased use of network printers. Rebate programs and free utility company energy audits are used when available as well.
In 1993, a new HVAC unit was installed on the conference center wing, so there is no need for the central plant to operate for longer hours merely to satisfy a need for an after-hours meeting. This installation also helped reduce the load on the main building chiller when large groups assembled. The first compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) to ever be installed in LexisNexis buildings were installed in this building, and occupancy sensors were installed in the bathrooms. These aggressive moves led LexisNexis (at that time, Mead Data Central) to receive the Commercial Business Energy Leader award from the local utility company, Dayton Power and Light Company.
In 1999, the building was converted to operate with an outside air economizer, and variable frequency drives (VFDs) were upgraded and added to the cooling towers. High-efficiency motors were installed in the large air handlers. A new split system with 100 percent outside air (O/A) cooling capability was added for the full-service kitchen. Starting in 2001, a new front-end system was installed for the DDC system, which prevails across the campus. This system helps the building engineers monitor and adjust almost all of the buildings on the main campus.
Today, all of the buildings on the LexisNexis campus use occupancy scheduling, sensors in offices and conference rooms, and high-efficiency fixtures. Even the vending machines are controlled by occupancy sensors. Some limited daylight harvesting is also employed in the buildings. Due to the management team's commitment to energy efficiency, several of the buildings on the campus have scored highly enough to earn the ENERGY STAR.
