Abstract

This project analyzed the energy efficiency of Alumni Gym’s building enclosure under the existing conditions and proposed renovations. Thermal imaging and Building Information Modeling were utilized to support this study. Recommendations for additional improvements were formulated based on the analysis of the proposed renovations. Proposed improvements included modifications to insulation, windows, the roof structure, the North Entry, and the addition of solar panels. A life-cycle cost assessment was conducted for each proposed change in order to determine its long term economic feasibility.
