Bainbridge Art Museum
In Partnership with:
Rocky Point Engineering was retained to provide an independent third party energy model and assessment of potential energy consumption and cost savings available by implementing a geoexchange system at the Bainbridge Art Museum. Located on Bainbridge Island, Washington, this 15,000 sqft facility will house art galleries and archives. Pudget Sound Energy (PSE) offers financial incentives for the installation of a geoexchange system as the central plant for this type of facility. The incentives are based on modeled energy consumption and cost savings.
Rocky Point Engineering performed detailed heat gain and loss calculations for the building, and completed the energy model using Seattle hourly weather data in order to determine accurate energy cost saving figures. Based on our experience with geoexchange projects, our involvement also included mechanical system recommendations in order to increase the overall system efficiency.
