Taynor Corporation wishes to remodel its corporate campus to achieve greater energy efficiency and to gain the "Green Business" rating from the state of Kansas. Taynor Corporation has budget for this project. Reduce the need for natural gas heat in winter and electricity and water all year round. Reduce maintenance and watering costs for landscaping.
Conduct business as usual during remodeling efforts.
Taynor’s buildings were originally constructed in 1912. While the age of the facilities create some challenges for modernization the high ceilings and thick walls allow for opportunities not easily achieved in more constricted setting. Remodel buildings and to reduce heating costs in winter. Remodel buildings and to reduce electricity usage all year round.
Redesign landscape to reduce maintenance and watering costs.
Retrofix proposes the following measures to update Taynor Corporation’s campus within the company’s stated budget limit. Install energy efficient skylights and row of glass block ‘windows’ immediately below the ceiling line in all bathrooms in the main room shared by workers in cubicles and in the company lunchroom. This will reduce electricity for lighting all year round and will reduce heating costs in autumn winter and spring seasons. Install solar water heating system to heat water for company bathrooms and kitchen.
This should completely eliminate the cost of heating water. Install programmable thermostats in all rooms to efficiently manage heating and cooling efforts. Replace all toilets with low water usage models and install automatic shut off devices on all faucets in bathrooms to reduce water usage.
Add motion sensors to all restrooms to automatically turn on off lights and fans. Replace all exterior lights with solar powered lights to reduce electricity usage after dark. Replace all lawn and exotic plantings with native wildflowers trees bushes and ornamental grasses to reduce maintenance and watering costs.
