Drury engaged us to provide energy audits and energy certifications for multiple properties across their portfolio. Drury is one of the most progressive hospitality corporations in the country, and they now build all their new properties to advanced energy performance standards. We provided energy assessments and audits for some of their oldest and newest properties across the Midwest US. Measures identified ranged from simple and quick payback lighting upgrades to complex fixes for incorrectly configured mechanical systems.
Project Challenges: Our role in this program included energy auditor consultant to Drury Hospitality and also a sub-consultant to another engineering firm. The buildings in this assessment and certification program ranged from new construction of very advanced building automation and energy system technology, to historic renovation of a 1929 office building into a hotel property. Our audit reports and support services have enabled them to optimize energy and financial performance of their energy systems across their portfolio.
