Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract

This project in Maple Glen, Pennsylvania is a Guaranteed Energy Savings Contract that is being implemented in the wake of an EF-2 tornado that damaged the facility. The scope of work includes major HVAC renovation that will be implemented in tandem with ongoing storm damage restoration efforts. 

The scope of this project includes:

  • A complete HVAC renovation, including the implementation of a geothermal wellfield to serve new water-source heat pumps and the installation of rooftop units and energy recovery units 
  • The introduction of cooling to the gym, cafeteria, and kitchen, and ventilation cooling to all classrooms
  • Replacement of the existing pneumatic HVAC control system to a new, web-based direct digital control (DDC) system 
  • Integration of the new HVAC controls into the existing school district controls infrastructure, allowing UDSD staff control of multiple facilities from a single interface
  • The introduction of a fire protection system to provide a fully sprinkled facility
  • LED lighting upgrades and the installation of occupancy and daylighting sensor controls
  • New cabinets and ceilings, freshly painted walls, and new or refinished floors and doors
