McKenney's, Inc. showcases energy efficiency at the 2500 Windy Ridge Parkway building in Atlanta
December 14, 2012 (Newswire) - Wells Real Estate Funds - the owner of the 15-story office building at 2500 Windy Ridge Parkway in Atlanta - is committed to sustainable practices that promote growth. Wells wanted to enhance the original mechanical systems to improve efficiency, and McKenney's, Inc. was chosen to manage the upgrade with a focus on energy and environmental stewardship.
The McKenney's in-house design engineering team developed a comprehensive energy model of the building to analyze and compare multiple upgrade options, including alternative plant configurations and chiller efficiencies.
The solution was to:
* Analyze and compare systems for most cost and energy-efficient solution
