UM TRI - ENERGY STAR Lighting

The ENERGY STAR Lighting project involved detailed audit and analysis, coordination, design, bid process, and construction management for a lighting upgrade project at the Transportation Research building at the University of Michigan. Fluorescent lamps and ballasts were upgraded to more energy efficient systems. Throughout this 78,000 sq. ft. facility, lighting was redesigned in areas containing high-output power groove fixtures which were replaced by T8/electronic fluorescent systems. This project improved illumination levels and overall quality of light while greatly reducing energy consumption, resulting in annual energy cost savings of $50,000.

Scope of Work

  • Audit and review of the operation of existing lighting systems.
  • Developed Energy Conservation Measures (ECM's) for energy projects that have an acceptable payback period.

Engineering Services

  • Coordinated audit of lighting systems.
  • Recommendations for lighting upgrades.
  • Estimated annual energy savings.
  • Estimated total construction cost.
  • Prepared detailed summary reports.
