Optimizing Building Efficiency. It’s What Makes Us, Us.
SUNY Alfred State College
Pathfinder provided award-winning mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineering and energy modeling for the $14 million project. This 55,000 sq. ft., three-story building was completely renovated to accommodate the Criminal Science, Biology and Nursing academic programs, and houses academic laboratories, nursing suites, laboratory media preparation and chemical storage areas, lecture halls, student lounges and faculty office spaces. The high-performance design meets goals to achieve LEED Gold Certification with 25 Energy & Atmosphere LEED points, plus 1 point for superior performance. The EA credit 1 for optimizing energy performance was 19 points (the maximum allowed for a renovation).
