I am looking to use my experience with a progressive consulting firm or institution to help them to progress their project or facilities management. I am looking for new career challenges and opportunities in the areas of energy conservation, renewables projects, engineering design, troubleshooting of complex systems, and delivery of outstanding projects or services. Love daily learning and constant business if includes intellectual challenges.
Energy Projects Improved the effectiveness of aging central plant, developed a utility master plan and have taken steps to modernize and extend it to support 50% more of the campus. In 10 years, have reduced total annual energy consumption by 15% while campus has grown by 50%. Engineered and installed an 840KW cogeneration plant capable of providing 95% of our electricity and running with thermal efficiencies between 60 and 80%. Recovered energy heats our pool, library, two dormitories, all our domestic hot water, and provides 100 tons of cooling (now officially Trigen). It saved $1.7M in first five and a half years, fully paying for itself. Implemented aggressive energy management enhancements that allow maximum savings while providing the best possible air and comfort for the building occupants. Recently we have installed hundreds of LED fixtures that enhance lighting quality while reducing energy use by 50-70%.
