Parris Island Facility Assessments - Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, SC
For the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pond provided facility auditing services for 50 facilities totaling 1,624,260 square feet at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot (MCRD) Parris Island, South Carolina. Pond’s architects and engineers conducted detailed energy and water surveys of the identified facilities and their associated systems and reviewed all available utility information. In addition, the audit services consisted of investigating and identifying Energy Conservation Opportunities (ECOs); developing applicable ECOs into Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) on each facility in the following areas: renewable energy projects, mechanical, electrical, building envelopes and water conservation projects; and summarizing the ECMs with their associated life cycle costs and their Savings to Investment Ratio (SIR) into one consolidated report. The established ECMs were organized and categorized in the following manner:
- Retro-commissioning (effective operation of current systems)
- Steam & Condensate Systems
- Boiler Plant Modifications
- Heating, Ventilating & Air Conditioning
- Lighting Systems
- Energy Recovery Systems
- Electrical Energy Systems
- Renewable Energy Systems
- Facility Energy Improvements
- Water Conservation
The results of these facility assessments will enable MCRD Parris Island to meet and exceed Federal Energy Reduction Legislation and will establish a master energy and water conservation plan for the implementation of future projects to improve energy and water efficiencies. Across the 50 buildings, projected energy savings are averaging above a 10% reduction. In some facilities, a 20% energy reduction can be achieved with the proposed energy conservation measures. Our team is estimating nearly half a million dollars in annual savings if all measures are implemented.
