Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Nov2009, Vol. 81 Issue 11, p26
The article reports on the energy auditing by the Engineering department of Genesys Inc. to Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut as respond to the ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1 which is focused on reducing the energy consumption of 25 to 30 percent. Marty Wallace, senior associate of Genesys, says that their examination of the building shows the ineffective ventilation due to the flow patterns. It notes that Genesys has made sustainable development changes in the building.
