RI Energy Code Training: Tiverton Library
Tue September 15, 2015 at 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The new Tiverton Library is approximately 23,800 square feet and includes a community meeting hall, café, children’s library, teen room and exterior public courtyard spaces. While Tiverton did not seek LEED Certification from the U.S.Green Building Council, the building design incorporated LEED v.3 New Construction standards and included a workshop on environmentally friendly library design.
The Tiverton Library was designed to have a predicted site Energy Use Intensity (EUI) of 43 kBtu/s.f./yr. The actual EUI will be determined after a full year of operation. The project is predicted to reduce annual energy costs per square foot by 45% compared to the baseline model.
Active energy efficiency measures include a high performance building enclosure, a dedicated outdoor air system, CO2-based demand controlled ventilation, variable frequency drives for fan speeds, high efficiency condensing boilers for both heating and domestic hot water, reduced light power densities, LED lighting, automatic occupancy sensors, and daylight dimming controls.
