We hear about the importance of "going green" and saving energy (which translates into saving money!) on a daily basis. The construction industry has even created different certifications to allow buildings to compete in energy efficiency. Getting your building Energy Star Certified is a great way to demonstrate your commitment to being energy conscious.
Our team certifies many buildings annually and we understand how to maneuver through the rules and regulations to get your facilities certified. During the Energy Star Review process, we often identify ways to reduce operating expenses and improve the conditions in the building. In addition, having an Energy Star Certified facility can make it easier to attract tenants.
LED lighting has become the new industry standard for parking garage lighting, architectural down lighting, and even 2x2 and 2x4 general lighting. LED fixtures can be 275% more efficient than incandescent fixtures and 75% more efficient than a T5 2x2 fixture, and can save you both energy and money in as little as one year!.
Williams Notaro can determine the right fixtures to meet your lighting, control, and budget requests. We can also perform a life cycle cost analysis to determine approximately how quickly your initial investment should pay off through reduced energy consumption and maintenance costs over the 15+ year LED fixture life.
Reducing operating expenses is becoming a major concern of managing a facility. Operating an energy efficient facility results in both a reduction of operating costs and an increase in marketability. In today's office space market, savvy tenants are using a building's operating expenses as a major consideration in site selection.
Williams Notaro can evaluate the systems in your facility and offer recommendations on changes in facility operations, system improvements, or system replacement strategies that could result in significant cost savings over the life of the facility.
With water usage requirements becoming more stringent in areas such as California and the District of Columbia, creative design solutions must be utilized to decrease the overall building water consumption and recycle the water that would otherwise be wasted.
Greywater recycling systems can re-purpose waste water for agricultural and process water services while low flow plumbing fixtures can reduce the overall water consumption resulting in less waste and reduced monthly costs.
Do you want to decrease your monthly energy bill or eliminate it all together? Williams Notaro can provide sustainable engineering expertise to develop energy generating systems to offset monthly electricity costs or develop net-zero energy buildings.
By combining energy efficient HVAC design with sustainable energy generating systems, your building can achieve net-zero energy consumption. With the District of Columbia's pledge to cut the energy consumption in half by 2032, new and existing buildings will be required to conform to the new DC green code. With this in mind, give us a call and start saving on your energy bill today.
Williams Notaro understands the unique nature of geoexchange system design and its impact on the building infrastructure system. We will team up with a site geoexchange consultant to design the well fields while we develop the remainder of the systems.
By combining our expertise with the expertise of the well field consulting team, we can provide you with high efficiency geoexchange systems and "green" infrastructure system technology. If you are looking for modern, renewable energy systems, call us and we can get you started!
