UM Towsley Center - Occupancy Sensors for Lighting and HVAC

The Occupancy Sensors project located at the UM Towsley Center in Ann Arbor involved the planning, design, installation and commissioning of occupancy sensors to control lighting off when spaces are unoccupied. The space included classrooms, offices and a conference room. Each area now features independent lighting control, automatically turning off lighting when occupants leave the space, saving a significant amount of electrical energy.

Scope of Work

  • Research into existing conditions via drawings and site visits.
  • Occupancy sensor, power pack and wiring layout.
  • Connection from occupancy sensor to HVAC system.
  • Engineering assistance during construction phase.
  • Data logging to confirm operation and savings.

  • Detailed design and costs estimate.
  • Equipment and instrument specifications.
  • Equipment and instrument procurement.
  • Control system design.
  • Construction observations.
  • Checkout, startup and commissioning.
