Dumke HPEB Energy Update

As new energy efficient buildings are completed on campus, older buildings are also receiving attention and updates.  The Dumke Health Professions Education Building at the University of Utah was identified as having the most unreliable HVAC control system on campus.  In particular, the building suffered from a particularly poor HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) system.  The State of Utah provided the much needed funding for this upgrade supported also by a substantial grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The yearlong process of planning and implementing energy smart updates to the Dumke Building were completed in June of 2012. The work for this project was overseen through Facilities Management at the University of Utah. Read more about the project in the EnergyWorks newsletter.
