Millsop Community Center Energy Reduction Renovations
CX(s) Applied: B2.5, B1.4, B5.1
Location(s): Weirton, West Virginia
Office(s): Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy
Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program. The scope of energy reduction renovations will involve the insulation of the building envelope, the installation of high efficiency environmental conditioning for the two most utilized gathering spaces within the Millsop Community Center, and the introduction of lighting controls for new low energy consumption light fixtures. The Upper Ohio Valley relies on coal for electrical generation. By reducing the overall energy usage, the proposed work will contribute to the overall reduction in fossil fuel emissions. The targeted areas for renovations and implementation of energy reduction and sustainability are the conference center and the Rose Room. Goals include the reduction of heat loss and heat gain by optimizing natural lighting with high performance low-e insulated thermally broken glazing in all fenestrations.
