Continuous Commissioning Results Verification and Follow-up For an Institutional Building: A Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
The Kleberg Building on the Texas A&M University campus is a teaching/research facility consisting of classrooms, offices and laboratories, with a total floor area of approximately 165,030 ft2. Continuous Commissioning (CC) was performed on the building in August 1996 with additional follow-up in April 1999 and significant savings were achieved. Subsequently, the building chilled water and hot water energy consumption increased due to later building operational changes. This paper presents the verification and follow-up efforts, which identified control problems in air handling units and laboratory variable air volume (VAV) systems and provided recommendations currently being implemented to restore HVAC optimization.
