Redstone Arsenal, Alabama
Seventy-four buildings connected to the base-wide steam distribution system were evaluated for possible decentralization from the main steam system. The life cycle analysis of the existing steam distribution system compared to a new decentralized natural gas heating/domestic hot water system indicated an annual energy savings of $2,800,000.
Allen & Hoshall provided a detailed energy study and construction documents for implementation of this project. Construction document services included architectural, structural, mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and civil documents.
Redstone Arsenal also utilized Allen & Hoshall’s commissioning services that included reviewing design documents and making regular site visits to ensure that installed equipment was per the design documents. Our staff performed start-up checks and functional checks on all equipment and installed controls.
Allen & Hoshall also performed measurement and verification of HVAC and Lighting Systems to verify that actual energy savings met or exceeded proposed savings.
