Barbour County Schools selected Wendel to develop a design-build project that encompasses energy related facility improvements across their portfolio of buildings. Wendel completed a Comprehensive Energy Audit to identify potential Energy Conservation Measures (ECMs) to be included in an overall facility improvement project. The evaluation of each ECM includes energy savings potential, implementation cost estimates and simple payback calculations.
As the design-builder, Wendel used a stepped delivery approach to work with the client to develop a comprehensive project program. Also, a fully transparent, open-book project budget was developed and managed by Wendel on behalf of the county. Services performed include energy analysis and auditing, design services, financing assistance, construction management, and overall program management including coordination with other facility renovation projects.
