Global Facility Solutions assists Osler Medical Center in obtaining $35,000 in rebates for building envelope upgrades
Baltimore, MD – August 24, 2011 – Global Facility Solutions (GFS) announced the recent completion of a Technical Services Study for Osler Medical Center today. GFS assisted Osler Medical in obtaining a $35,000 rebate from BGE to help pay for building envelope upgrades. The services fall under the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program®.
GFS completed the Technical Services Study at Osler Medical’s nearly 58,000 square-foot facility in Towson, Maryland. A Building Performance Audit was completed at the Center through on-site analysis of the existing systems, direct field measurement of operations and interviews with site personnel. The analysis of the facility was completed in partnership with TerraLogos Energy Group in Baltimore, MD. Air leaks wereidentified using diagnostic equipment such as thermal imaging, blower door analysis and temperature scanning.
As a result of the assessment, TerraLogos Energy Group proposed $70,000 worth of upgrades and repairs to correct deficiencies and create a more balanced and energy-efficient facility. GFS provided the energy analysis and building simulation model under the requirements of the BGE rebate program. Upon implementation, Osler Medical will be eligible for $35,000 in rebates from the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program® – approximately 50% of the total project implantation cost.
Based on engineering estimates, the measures will save Osler Medical nearly $20,000 in energy savings.
GFS is pre-qualified under the BGE rebate program to provide turn-key retro-commissioning services for BGE utility clients and can help clients obtain BGE rebates of up to $15,000 per building for performing RCx services and Technical Engineering Services.
