PM Environmental, Inc. was retained to provide building facilities consulting services related to HUD refinancing of the subject property by the client.
PM initially completed a Green Property Condition Assessment (GPCA) that identified the condition of the buildings, site work and all of the major mechanical systems at the subject property, as well as performed a full energy audit on the facility. Condition issues and deferred maintenance items were addressed in the report as well as the identification and analysis of energy conservation measures.
Investigation of the complex identified repairs that needed to be undertaken for accessibility, short term needs and long term capital reserve needs. Inefficient lighting and heating and cooling systems were identified for replacement.
In conjunction with the GPCA, PM also performed a full energy audit for the subject property and identified potential savings via water conserving fixtures and lighting upgrades. By switching to low flow bathroom faucet aerators and low-flow shower heads, the facility was expected to save over $4,500 per year in water and sewer operational costs. Replacement of inefficient throughwall air conditioning units and incandescent exit signage was proposed.
PM also worked closely with local pest management company to develop and implement an Integrated Pest Management plan that does not use harmful chemicals to control pests.
