Job Description:

The RO Engineering team  performed a comprehensive building energy assessment, which focused on identifying cost effective energy efficiency measures for this building. The building is a 104 -unit rental apartment building with 12  offices and 3 commercial units located Midtown Manhattan.

This study investigates cost-effective opportunities to reduce both electric and fuel oil usage. RO Engineering identified a number of energy efficiency measures (EEMs) and operation and maintenance (O&M) procedures, which if implemented would reduce energy and annual operating costs. RO has also submitted the building for incentives available through the NYSERDA MPP program.
