Managing Principal
Salas O'Brien

Salas O’Brien complete an energy audit of the Frances C. Arrigalla Alumni Center in 2010, a three-story office building built in 2001 in an effort to reduce energy use at the Center. The building receives steam and chilled water from the campus central plant for heating and cooling. Equipment serving the building is connected to the Energy Management and Control System (EMCS) and coordinated by the campus facilities team. Based on Salas O’Brien’s audit and energy conservation measures (ECM’s) identified during the audit stage, our team was hired to design to implement seven ECM’s. Our team assisted Stanford University though the implementation and construction phase. Our commissioning team completed commissioning, measurement and verification analysis which revealed that the Alumni Center saved 108,860 TNHR of chilled water; 2,659 MMBTU of hot water; and 349,826 KWH of electricity with a total operating cost savings of $203,800 (first year), which was higher than the initial ROI and expected energy savings outlined by Salas O’Brien’s energy audit team in 2010.
