Stevenson Towers Project-Bronx, NY

Stevenson Towers consists of two buildings, situated such that they appear to be one building. Access from Building A to Building B is only possible on the first floor. Built in 1972, Stevenson Towers is a 104,177 square foot, 6-story residential building consisting of 10 Studio apartments, 68 one-bedroom apartments, and 44 two-bedroom apartments, for a total of 122 units.

Common spaces at Stevenson Towers include a Community Room, Laundry Room, and a Lobby and Vestibule on the North and South sides of the building complex. Two elevators serve the residents of Stevenson Towers, one in Building A and the other in Building B.

The building envelope consists of 4” brick and concrete block construction with balconies from the 2nd—6th floors on all facades with the exception of the Westfacing façade, which faces the Court Yard. Windows are metal frame, double-pane with 1/2” gazing. Electric and natural gas are master-metered for both buildings. Space heating is provided by two natural gas low pressure steam boilers, and domestic hot water is generated by tankless coils.

KBS performed an Energy Audit at Stevenson Towers and recommended the following Energy Efficiency Measures (EEMs):

· Installation of an Energy Management System

· Reduction of DHW temperature from 140 to 130 degrees F

· Radiator Repair in Lobby so that electric space heaters can be retired.

· Reduction in Exhaust Fan operating hours.

· Lighting Upgrade in Common Areas to include Bi-Level Lighting System in Hallways and Stairways.

This EEM package recommended by KBS represents an annual reduction of 18.7% in fuel us and 33.8% of electric use.

The energy professionals at KeySpan Business Solutions (KBS) provide a full spectrum of integrated engineering, design, mechanical contracting, facilities management, and energy consulting services.

Before making decisions about your building’s energy future, contact KBS for a thorough analysis of your options.
