UM Kraus Building - Occupancy Sensors

The project involved the installation of occupancy sensors to control HVAC and lighting on the first through fourth floors of the E.H. Kraus building. These new sensors turn off both lighting and airflow in rooms individually during unoccupied periods. This project has saved energy by reducing the amount of electrical energy for lighting, electrical and steam energy for heating, ventilating and air conditioning.

Scope of Work

  • Installed occupancy sensors for lighting and connected to HVAC using EP relays.
  • Replaced and rewired existing starters.
  • Installed new EP's to control chilled water.
  • Remounted existing transformers.
  • Rewired fuse blocks.
  • Addressed grounding and other existing electrical code issues.
  • Cleaned congested ceiling to prepare for new conduit installation.
