Facility Modernization Project
This project used proven-effective technologies to maximize utility savings and fund critical infrastructure needs.
Pennsylvania released an RFP seeking to modernize its Capitol complex. The goal: dramatically reduce utility costs while upgrading antiquated building systems.
TEN won the right to implement this project through the State’s streamlined Guaranteed Energy Savings Act (GESA).
Pennsylvania’s Department of General Services (DGS) is a national leader in implementing innovative, cost-effective facility modernization projects.
Working with visionary state leaders, TEN implemented a comprehensive project that maximized energy savings, using cutting-edge engineered solutions and inventive operational strategies.
- Upgraded over 20,000 lighting fixtures using cutting edge LED technology
- Installed three new magnetic-bearing chillers and pumps with smart controls
- Modernized building controls and retro-commissioned utility distribution systems.
- Utilized innovative technologies (like chilled water plant optimization software) as well as timetested low-cost measures (like passive window film to reduce summer heat gain)
