- LEED Gold Certified
- LEED: 22 EA Points (LEED for Homes), 40% better than ASHRAE 90.1 2004
- Project Value: $34 million
Oswego constructed new student townhouses, consisting of 12 buildings totaling 144,000 sq. ft. and 350 beds. The project achieved LEED Gold certification.
Pathfinder provided mechanical engineering design and energy modeling services.
Each building is heated and cooled utilizing equipment located primarily in a separate boiler/mechanical building, with each serving six buildings. Heating/cooling is distributed via a two pipe water system. Heat is provided by four high-efficiency natural gas fired, condensing hot water boilers. Cooling is provided by evaporative, air cooled, multiple stage water chillers. Heating and/or cooling is provided in the various spaces by radiant
heating/cooling valance units. All living units are provided with an Energy Recovery
Ventilator (ERV) to recover heating and cooling energy from exhaust and ventilation air streams.
High efficiency equipment was selected to meet or exceed the energy requirements of Executive Order 111, and to provide points for potential LEED certification of the building. In addition to the high-energy efficiency of the equipment, the refrigeration systems selected use R-410A, a non-ozone depleting refrigerant that is also a LEED requirement.
Energy models were prepared for New York State Executive Order 111 compliance, as well as the LEED-NC rating system (ASHRAE 90.1-04).
