The exterior envelope modeling optimized the wall, roof, floor and glazing performances (R-31 walls, R-50 roof, R-7 triple-glazed/argon-filled windows) to significantly reduce heating demand.
"The newly designed exterior wall improved the performance of the facade from an R-4.6 to an R-31.9, which will save the college $225,366 per year," explains Peter Schlossman, senior associate principal for Loebl Schlossman & Hackl.
The minimum R-factor in most climate zones should be R-19 walls and R-31 roofs.
The existing envelope was supplemented with a new high-efficiency R-31 wall system and a new R-30 roof.
