You and Your Architect and Energy Conservation Savings for Educational Facilities. A Report.
Schrader, Charles F.
Estimates from a number of reliable sources indicate that reductions in energy consumption are possible in both existing and new facilities. Estimates vary from 25 to 50 percent for older buildings and 50 to 80 percent for new construction. Prudent school administrators should take stock of their physical facilities and look for possible ways to save on energy consumption. Architects are prepared to perform an energy consumption analysis of an existing plant and offer a constructive program of facilities modification to conserve energy. Designing new facilities with energy conservation as a major design component, architects are prepared to work with school officials from the initial program development and site selection through to completed project. Lists briefly illustrate energy conservation possibilities that can be implemented in (1) current buildings by existing staff, (2) the modification of existing facilities, and (3) the design of new facilities.
