NV5 developed a sustainability program for Boston Logan International Airport’s Terminal C under contract with the Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport).
Engineering services included an initial assessment of the 630,000 SF facility to determine and quantify the level of utility reduction opportunities. Work included the evaluation of public and tenant submeter data and establishment of baseline energy allocations. We then developed recommendations for the terminal, including an update for select lighting, upgrade and retro-commissioning of HVAC systems and building management controls, and the addition of heat rejection systems from baggage scanners, among many others.
It was determined that energy use at the terminal could be reduced by 15% within two years.
NV5 also worked with Massport to establish an environmental impact profile for greenhouse gas reductions, and provided implementation support including advisement on in-house lighting work as well as design of new equipment installations. NV5 also was engaged in review of renovation plans and integrating best energy efficient practices into the new designs.
