Project Description

The Site building was constructed in 1915 and is currently a 13-floor commercial office space. GRANT’s role in this property has been related to analyzing building operations & maintenance over the course of several years. A significant portion of GRANT’s involvement is to advise on energy efficiency opportunities.
GRANT was contracted by the client to perform an energy audit and retro-commissioning analysis to comply with Local Law 87. A review of the New York City Department of Finance (NYCDOF) Local Law 87 Covered Buildings List – Energy Audits and Retro-Commissioning indicates that the Site is required to comply with Local Law 87 in 2018. Local Law 87 requires that buildings over 50,000sf perform an ASHRAE Level 2 Energy Audit and Retro-Commissioning of the following “base building systems”: building envelope, HVAC, domestic hot water, electrical and lighting, and conveying systems. “Base building systems” exclude any equipment owned or operated by tenants or condo owners. The law also requires that the building owner correct any items that do not conform to the “efficient operations criteria” listed in section 28-308.3 of Local Law 87.
