Brown University Renovation Tour Building for Environmental Research & Teaching

Thu December 11, 2014 at 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

89 Waterman Street, Providence, RI

{{brown{{This project tour will showcase built examples of passive and active systems that were implemented at the Building for Environmental Research & Teaching (BERT) project to reduce its predicted site energy use by more than 25% when compared to its code equivalent baseline.  The Building for Environmental Research & Training (BERT) project included the complete renovation of the existing 55,000 square foot, four-story brick structure, Hunter Lab building.
The renovation project updated the building to lab and teaching uses for the University’s environmental sciences program.  Compared to the code baseline case for building loads excluding special research equipment, the project is expected to reduce annual energy consumption by more than 25%.
The project is predicted to reduce annual energy costs by 20%.  Energy efficiency measures include interior spray foam insulation, HVAC energy recovery, chilled beam, radiant heat, reduced light power densities, and automatic occupancy and daylight dimming controls
