Better Building Challenge
Zellerbach Administration Headquarters Showcase Project: Camas School District
Camas School District selected the J.D. Zellerbach Administration Headquarters to undergo an energy efficiency renovation effort to the campus’ four buildings. This campus was originally built in 1967 and operated as an elementary school until 2010 when the school was remodeled into the current administration center. Energy efficiency measures (EEMs) included in this project are expected to result in an energy savings of 31% and a cost savings of $22,000.
The overall project consists of improvements to the main HVAC systems including: reprogramming and recommissioning of the direct digital controls (DDC) and graphical user interface, installing CO2 sensing and demand control, and repair and replacement of broken mechanical and control components.
In addition to the energy savings benefits of the airside economizer implemented at Zellerbach, the system will also improve the indoor air quality of the facility as a greater amount of ventilation air is provided to the occupied spaces than during the minimum outside air mode.
