Title: Envisioning Empowering Sustainable Campus Design

Envisioning Empowering Sustainable Campus Design
  • NJIT
  • Facility Size - 45 acres
  • Number of Buildings - 28
  • Space-2.6 Mil Sq.Ft.

Empowering Sustainable Design
  • Vision - Facility Management created a vision of
    Sustainable University infrastructure for desired
    future growth.
  • Strategy - We established a course of action
    based on a set of short and long term goals and
    empowered managers to implement sustainable
  • Tactics Based on strategic goals Consulting
    company developed a set of sustainable design
    recommendations for the Campus Center complex.
  • Implementation - 48 different sustainable
    projects were implemented based on available

Planning for Sustainable Features
  • At NJIT we look at a facility's environmental
  • from a "whole building" perspective over the
    project life cycle.
  • Controlled Conceptual design phase
  • Designed a Sequence of equipment operations
  • Participated in Equipment Commissioning
  • Applied for and received 576,472 Equipment
    Rebates from PSEG.
  • Instituted a technical education program to
    further the skill level of the personnel,
    resulting in much better engineers and mechanics
    that perform at a higher professional level.

Sustainable Facility require Smart Management
  • Complicated energy conservation systems require
    better management, proper maintenance and more
    professionals to handle them effectively.

Campus Center Complex Project 381,000 Sq.Ft,
  • Campus Center (West) Building
  • Main Heating Plant
  • Cooling Plant
  • Fresh Air Heat Recovery System
  • East Building
  • Parking Garage Exhaust System VFD operated based
    on CO level Detection
  • Emergency Generator provides Demand Load shedding
    when requested by PSEG

Site Issues
  • Minimized extent of cleared site
  • Recycled site-clearing waste
  • Developed a construction erosion control plan
  • Developed a plan to minimize and mitigate
    construction-related chemical spills
  • Specified native plants for landscaping

Campus Center
Energy Efficiency - Building Envelope
  • Optimized exterior building shading
  • Insulated exterior walls to R-19
  • Insulated roofs to R-30
  • Specified Energy-Star complaint roofing finish
  • Limited glazing area to 25 window-wall ratio

East Building Exterior Window Shades
Energy Efficiency - Lighting
  • Use only compact fluorescent lamps or T8
    fluorescent lamps with electronic ballasts
  • Consider T5 fluorescent lamps for indirect,
    pendent lighting applications
  • Select appropriate lighting control strategies
    including occupancy sensors and daylight dimming
  • Install high efficiency exterior lighting with
    photocell and schedule control

East Building Parking Deck Light
Energy Efficiency -Mechanical Systems
  • 9 High Efficiency Boilers are controlled by
    Campus Wide DDC system
  • All Pumps have VFD controls and consume energy
    based on actual demand for services
  • 3 High Efficiency Chillers x 650 Ton each with
    variable speed centrifugal compressor
  • Chillers operate at low condenser water
    temperature 55 to 85 Deg. F. and have economizer
    cycle to utilize free cooling.
  • 3 Cooling Towers provide free cooling capability

Campus Center Building Mechanical Equipment Room
Solar Energy - Photovoltaic System
50 kW Photovoltaic power generation system
  • This system estimated to produce 51,716 kWh of
  • eliminate 86,832 lbs of CO2 emissions in the
    first year
  • NJIT received 215,000 from the NJ Board of
    Public Utilities as a rebate funding
  • Success of the system helps to advance the
    development of a renewable energy market in New

Campus Center roof
Water Efficiency Issues
  • Installed low-flow domestic fixtures including
    dual-flush tank-type toilets, and automatic
  • Limited landscape and impervious surfaces on the
  • Filter, treat and retain storm water run-off from
    the site

Indoor Environment Quality Issues
  • Do not permit smoking inside the facility
  • Installed dedicated exhaust systems to mitigate
    sources of indoor pollution
  • Specified low-VOC materials for building finishes
  • Located outside air intakes at least 20 feet from
    pollutant sources
  • Specified drain-dry stainless steel condensate
  • Did not use lined ductwork
  • Specified micro-pleat air filters
  • Provided small HVAC zones and opportunities for
    occupant control over HVAC systems.

Material Issues
  • Separated and recycled construction waste
  • Provided space in the facility for collection of
    recyclable waste
  • Selected durable materials
  • Specified materials that are manufactured locally
    and regionally
