The team at RTM Engineering Consultants (RTM) loves it when we hear from our clients. We have been working with the city of Orlando on a Green Works Initiative, which began with ASHRAE level II energy audits and upgrades for 55 city buildings. Currently, RTM is performing As Designed evaluations per ASHRAE’s Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) program as another method to improve energy consumption in numerous buildings within the city.
Buildings audited and/or assessed include fire stations, Leu Gardens, a senior center, Orlando Police training facilities, and Fleet and Facilities Management buildings.
David L. Dunn, Division Manager at Fleet & Facilities Management Division, wrote about his enjoyable experience with the RTM team and how their work will play an integral part in the City of Orlando’s success in changing the sustainable dynamic in central Florida.
“The city of Orlando constantly strives to identify and implement energy conservation measures across a wide portfolio of facilities. The work performed by RTM is helping Orlando lead the charge to become one of the most sustainable cities in the southeast.
“Through the Mayor’s Green Works initiative, the City is undergoing a $17.5 million bond project to ramp up the efficiency of 55 public buildings, investing in energy efficiency measures and improving the resiliency of city facilities in the wake of climate change…The savings from this initiative will approach $2.4 million annually…These citywide renovations will add significant value to Orlando’s aging infrastructure, while providing occupants with increased comfort and safety.”
“The experienced and knowledgeable team at RTM has helped the city works towards our sustainability goals and I would not hesitate to recommend them to other agencies looking to improve energy efficiency and reduce waste.”
