HEAPY continues to be recognized as one of the country’s Top 100 Green-Building Design Firms! The market for sustainable design and construction continues to grow. As the bar also continues rise to achieve “green” certification, HEAPY is there providing sustainability leadership for the A/E/C industry.
Examples of recent LEED certified projects (pictured above) and their descriptions can be found below.
University of Dayton Adele Center
The University of Dayton’s Adele Center is a new mixed-use dormitory that has 24 suites for a total of 96 students. The first floor consists of University department offices, student organization meeting spaces and a large multi-purpose room, while the upper 3 floors hold the 24 suites. The project incorporated a 53-kW roof-mounted Solar PV array that is expected to generate nearly 10% of the building’s annual energy usage. In total, the building’s energy model identified the project as 23% more efficient than a typical similar building. This energy performance was achieved using LED lighting and controls as well as using highly efficient HVAC systems and equipment.
Columbus Convention Center Expansion
The facility underwent a $125 Million upgrade the past 2 years which included an interior renovation and an expansion and redesign. Over 30% of energy reduction was achieved with the new MEP Systems design by HEAPY. This was primarily achieved via new LED lighting and controls, incorporation of heating hot water load into a new central boiler plant, and a VRF system in the connector to the Goodale Garage.
