Bartlett Hall is a new, LEED Silver, 32,000 square foot academic building at Ocean County College.
By using higher efficiency mechanical equipment and sizing the system based upon need, the building’s energy use reduced by 23.2%. As part of an innovative solution to utilize the school’s existing, underutilized infrastructure, the project team utilized excess boiler capacity from an adjacent building. An existing building located nearby had enough extra capacity so that this new building did not require a new boiler system.
Bartlett Hall also features roof top solar modules, Energy Star rated light fixtures, high efficiency windows, sun shades, no irrigation and a 40.1% water use reduction. 23% of building materials were recycled and 32% of building materials were manufactured locally. The building is 26% energy efficient over the baseline design.
More than 23.2% of the building materials contain, in aggregate, a minimum weighted average of 20% post-consumer recycled content or a minimum weighted average of 40% post-industrial recycled content. More than 32% of the building materials, by cost, were manufactured within 500 miles of the project site. 50% of that material was extracted or harvested locally.
