Research and Educational Laboratory Space, MA
A commercial pilot deployment of KGS's web-based, automated continuous commissioning software in a 400,000 square foot mixed-use wet-laboratory, educational and conference space. The software was integrated with Schneider Electric's Continuum energy management and control system to facilitate seamless monitoring and analysis on more than 13,000 data points points, including 24 air-handlers, over 700 terminal boxes and fume hoods, and many other pieces of HVAC equipment. Within the first six months, KGS' software succesfully identified dozens of equipment faults worth over $50,000 a year, in near real time without any affect on the Schneider Electric Continuum field controllers.
Affordable Housing, NJ
A commercial pilot deployment of KGS's web-based automated continuous commissioning software in 12 mid and high rise multi-family buildings. The software was integrated with Computrols' energy management and control system to monitor and analyze steam boiler and domestic hot water systems, central chiller plants, pump stations and other equipment. KGS is working with local mechanical contractors to use the software to manage service work orders and improve tenant satisfaction with building operations.
Energy Auditing and Commissioning
One Lincoln Center, NY
KGS Buildings was retained to provide a complete sub-metering and utilities allocation plan for this mixed-use luxury residential and retail tower located near Lincoln Center in NYC, NY. As part of the sub-meter design process, KGS produced new as-built drawings of the building's steam and condenser water distribution network, and designed utility allocation formulae based on tenant usage and capacity-need instead of ownership stake. KGS also oversaw the installation of the sub-meters, and reviewed the first 6 months of sub-meter bills to ensure that the utilities were properly allocated by the sub-metering agent. Overall, KGS's sub-metering plan has saved the residential tenants over $150,000 per year, leading to a reduction in residential tenant CAM charges by nearly 10% - an unprecedented result in the Manhattan luxury condo market.
Luxury Townhouse, NY
KGS Buildings was retained to provide forensic analysis on the inability of a commercial HVAC system to meet comfort conditions in a seven story, 20,000 square foot luxury townhouse on the upper east side of NYC, NY. Succeeding where previous engineering and contracting firms had failed for several years, KGS discovered installation errors on the chilled and hot water piping that ultimately prevented the HVAC system from functioning properly. KGS also identified over-sized equipment, malfunctioning controls, and broken actuators. Following that forensic work, KGS provided and oversaw the implementation of a complete engineering modernization and upgrade plan for the HVAC system that also resulted in energy savings of over $30,000 per year.
