RELEVANT PROJECT EXPERIENCE

  • State of Texas – Owner’s Representative – Provided owner’s representation services to State Agencies engaging in energy conservation and demand side management projects.  Represented and consulted with the owner through all phases of performance contracts.  Agencies represented include, but are not limited to, Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Department of Transportation, and Texas Facilities Commission.

 

  • Texas State Technical College, Sweetwater, TX; Developed and implemented a guaranteed savings performance contract for this campus.  Energy conservation measures included such items as lighting retrofits, HVAC upgrades, controls upgrades, and computer power management systems.

 

  • Houston Community College, Houston, TX; Project Development Leader of the development of an energy savings performance contract for this customer.  Campus consisted of 13 building totaling over 600,000 SF.  Energy conservation measures developed for this project include such items as major central utility plant retrofit, lighting upgrades, water conservation, and control system upgrades.

 

  • Temple College, Temple, TX; Project Development Leader of the development of an energy savings performance contract for this customer.  Project consisted of 16 facilities totaling approximately 330,000 SF.  Energy conservation measures included such items as window film, lighting upgrades, controls upgrades, and vending machine controls.

 

  • St. Edwards University Energy Audit & Thermal Energy Storage, Austin, TX; Performed energy audit of 13 buildings totaling 400,000 SF on the campus. Surveyed the central utility plant and chilled water system, and interviewed college personnel to gather pertinent operational information. Determined all potential energy conservation saving alternatives and made recommendations with simple payback and return on investment options. Provided construction documents and construction oversight of a new 4,700 ton-hour thermal energy storage system along with primary/secondary pumping retrofit, new air handling unit retrofits, and energy control strategies.

 

  • Schreiner University, Kerrville, TX; Performed energy audit of 22 buildings totaling approximately 281,000 SF for the development of an energy savings performance contract.  Provided life cycle cost analysis on potential energy conservation measures including lighting retrofits, controls upgrades, and HVAC upgrades.

 

  • Tyler Junior College Detailed Energy Audit, Tyler, TX; Provided energy analysis to determine the best long-term plan for this college campus that included classrooms, dormitories, laboratories, offices, museums, theaters, student centers, and gymnasiums.  Modeled the 770,000 SF campus using an HVAC hourly simulation program to determine energy costs of all alternatives.  Capital costs, maintenance costs, salvage values, and future replacements costs were calculated.  Provided construction documents and construction oversight for the implementation of a new 5,800 ton-hour thermal storage tank, new water-cooled chillers, new primary/secondary pumping system, variable hot water pumping, new variable volume air distribution systems, and energy control systems.
