Karpman Consulting performs energy analysis for LEED, incentive programs, tax credits, in support of energy audits, to evaluate design, and in research settings. An ASHRAE certified BEMP (Building Energy Modeling Professional) acts as the lead on every project.

CASE STUDIES

T-Project

T-Project, a high rise located in Tokyo, Japan, earned the maximum number of points for EA C1 (10) under LEED NC 2.2. Karpman Consulting performed the energy modeling for the project. Modeled technologies included a double bundle heat recovery chiller, district cooling, under floor air distribution, automated blinds, energy management system, and daylighting control. Karpman Consulting also developed a measurement & verification plan, reviewed trend data from the building management system, and developed a calibrated energy simulation for the project.

Enfield High School

Enfield High School is a secondary school in Enfield, CT. The school underwent a major renovation and addition, with an updated square footage of approximately 310,000 SF, and Karpman Consulting acted as the energy consultant on the project. In the early phases of the design process, Karpman Consulting modeled several HVAC system types under consideration, including chilled beams + DOAS, conventional VAV, and fan coil units + DOAS, evaluating each option in terms of energy performance. The project team ultimately selected the chilled beam system.

During the design development phase, Karpman Consulting conducted an additional modeling analysis that evaluated the project's progress towards its energy goals, and provided recommendations for cost-effective improvements to the design. Upon completion of the design, Karpman Consulting documented compliance with the state's High Performance Requirements, which mandated that publicly funded buildings exceed the energy code by at least 21%.

SUNY Building 25

SUNY Building 25 is a 28,000 SF major renovation project that will house academic offices, classrooms, conference room, and other academic space. Karpman Consulting acted as the energy consultant on the project. A modeling analysis was performed during the schematic design phase to evaluate HVAC system alternatives under considerations. During design development, an additional analysis was performed to inform the design decisions being made in the DD phase and to further optimize the design. Upon completion of the construction documents, LEED documentation was completed for the project to document compliance with LEED Energy and Atmosphere Prerequisite 2 and Energy and Atmosphere Credit 1. Documentation was also provided to the customer to demonstrate compliance with Executive Order 88, which requires an early design modeling analysis for publicly funded buildings in New York State.

Washington Way

Washington Way is a multifamily complex with a total square footage of approximately 423,000 sf. Karpman Consulting conducted a Level 3 energy audit of the facility and performed hourly energy modeling to determine predicted energy savings from a variety of energy efficiency measures, including attic and crawl space insulation, condensing boilers, digital control systems, pipe insulation, and lighting improvements. Karpman Consulting developed an Energy Reduction Plan and documented the predicted energy savings for participation in the New Jersey Pay for Performance Program. Karpman Consulting also performed post-retrofit billing analysis to verify projected energy savings.

Gateway Commons

Gateway Commons is a mixed use multifamily building located in New York. Karpman Consulting performed a full energy analysis to earn 5 points for LEED EA C1 and an incentive from NYSERDA (New York State Energy Research and Development Authority).

Groton Municipal Building

The Groton Municipal Building is a mixed use facility in Connecticut that incudes office space, an auditorium, and a data center. Karpman Consulting performed an energy analysis to support an energy audit and study. The goal was to evaluate potential energy efficiency measures and quantify the potential savings.
