This prestigious University in California has an aggressive program to reduce their carbon footprint and as part of that effort they are assessing their portfolio on a building-by-building basis. The University wanted to target projects for a more sustainable lab building. We were selected to find cost-effective ways to reduce the energy consumption in the Wagner* building, an 85,000 sf chemistry and biology lab facility.
Our final package of recommended measures incorporates retrofits to the lab airflow controls according to ANSI Z9.5 – 2012 best practices, including fume hood standby airflow reductions, high performance hood sash panels, and updates to the Phoenix controls system.
