Collaboration and Energy Efficiency

June 16, 2015

As one of the largest consumers of energy in the U.S., hospitals spend more than $8 billion each year, making energy efficiency an important component of any project.  Crittenton Hospital’s new 6-story addition received the top incentive rate with DTE’s Energy Efficiency Program, earning more than $200,000 in incentives to offset energy technologies installed in the $65 million, 155,000 sf project.

Harley Ellis Devereaux used energy modeling software to compare and contrast multiple system options, resulting in energy savings above ASHRAE standards by more than 30%.  With an enthusiastic spirit of collaboration, the mechanical systems, utility routing and constructability issues were vetted out early for an efficient design flow, providing more confidence to the project budget.
