This project for the Kentucky Community & Technical College System was a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract for Elizabethtown Community and Technical College. The project included energy upgrades to nearly 500,000 square feet of educational, administrative and technical training spaces across all three ECTC campuses. The project highlights include extensive LED lighting retrofits, utility rates savings, significant HVAC control and HVAC system upgrades. HVAC system replacements included several original building systems over 40 years old, such as AHUs, chillers, boilers, and VAV terminal units at four buildings. Additionally, the project replaced a troublesome rooftop HVAC unit that had been leaking for several years. The project also stretched a concurrent architectural upgrade to an administrative building on campus with new ceiling tiles, light fixtures and HVAC grilles/diffusers.

As president of West Liberty University, it is with great confidence that I recommend CMTA to any institution of higher learning looking to upgrade their facilities. CMTA has proved to be a valuable partner for improving the infrastructure and learning environment on campus.
Our project replaced multiple systems at the end of their life, as well as resolving many of the control issues that we were experiencing throughout our college. CMTA has been a valuable asset after the project as well, through the review of our data. Their reviews have provided additional savings.
CMTA provided value beyond the energy upgrades and renovations by also being a strong advocate and technical asset for the college throughout our project... not only do we have the new equipment and controls, we have a resource that shares our interest in continually improving efficiency.
