Highlighted Project

The following projects demonstrate our excellent work for educational institutions:

Marshak Science Tower energy upgrades

Marshak Science Building Rehabilitation

College in Manhattan Saves 1.3 MWh/year

The Marshak Science Building is part of the City College of New York campus on the upper west side of Manhattan. The building is a mid-rise, 750,000 square foot science building, which includes research and teaching labs, office areas, a library, an auditorium, and a gymnasium with a pool. To address indoor air quality issues caused by aging infrastructure, Willdan is implementing a multi-phase project that includes the study, design, and construction management for the renovation of the facilities.

Two of the three project phases are nearly complete, including the installation of a new building management system, retrofits of flow fume hoods, and new make-up air systems for the building’s laboratories. This project has already resulted in avoided costs of $55.4 million to replace failing systems, and an annual energy savings of over 1,325,000 kWh. Additionally, the measures addressed building air quality and environmental control issues that had plagued the facility and led to violations and lawsuits against the college.

Pueblo Schools

Pueblo County School District 70

Engineering for Success

Pueblo County School District 70 (Pueblo) selected Willdan to complete a performance contract for energy-efficient facility improvements. This contract followed a collaborative effort between Pueblo and Willdan to develop a district-wide, 15-year master plan to maintain and update K-12. In collaboration with the Colorada Energy Office, Willdan was able to install measures that not only saved energy, but also improved environmental conditions within school district facilities. This project delivered 1,794,000 kWh in annual savings.
