Henry Ford Community College

Baumann Consulting provided building demand modeling and analysis for all 23 buildings across the two campuses of the Henry Ford Community College to collaboratively develop an Integrated Energy Master Plan (IEMP).

Baumann provided building energy and performance modeling and analysis as part of a team of consultants developing an integrated energy master plan (IEMP) for Henry Ford College. The College defined the following IEMP framing goals relative to FY2017 baseline performance:

  • Increase source energy efficiency by 60% and water efficiency by 40%
  • Reduce carbon footprint by 50%
  • Provide an 8% return on investment

Baumann created building energy models representing 23 buildings across two campuses and analyzed a series of whole-campus and individual-building efficiency measures. Based on existing building conditions and performance assessments, Baumann developed a comprehensive retrofit package designed to meet whole-campus performance targets. Further campus-level analysis proved that this package provided a roadmap to achieving the College’s energy efficiency, water efficiency, carbon reduction, and financial framing goals.

In early 2019, the College Board of Trustees issued a request for proposals for implementing the IEMP recommendations, and in late 2019 gave the approval to proceed and entered a performance contract with a design and construction team including Baumann as a member. The IEMP implementation project began the design phase in early 2020, and subsequently construction in early 2021.

As part of the implementation team, Baumann provided design reviews, retro-commissioning (retro-Cx), new equipment commissioning, monitoring-based commissioning (MBCx), and measurement and verification (M&V) services for a high-performance project including a new combined heat and power plant, low-temperature district heating system, solar PV array, high-efficiency lighting fixtures and controls, HVAC replacement and refurbishment, and xeriscape landscaping.
