LEED Certification


The project consisted of a new 130 room hotel adjacent to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill campus. The project received a LEED Gold certification.

Mechanical systems included large rooftop heat recovery units to recover heat from the building exhaust systems. The individual rooms were served with air to air heat pump units.

KLG Jones provided full commissioning services for the mechanical, electrical, and emergency power systems. Both LEED Fundamental and Enhanced commissioning services were provided to help achieve the LEED Gold rating. All of the drawings were reviewed at critical times during the design phase of the project. Commissioning specifications and a commissioning plan were prepared. All of the MEP submittals were reviewed in parallel with the A/E team. Periodic site visits were made to inspect the construction and hold commissioning meetings. Functional performance tests were prepared and the functional testing was conducted in conjunction with the contractors. All of the test and balance work was validated through random sampling techniques. A complete deficiency list was maintained through out the project and all of the deficiencies were backchecked prior to signing off on the project.
