Project Leads: Bradley Froehle, Alberto Ortega Hinojosa, Nancy Nam
Sponsor: Graduate Assembly Environmental Sustainability Committee
TGIF Grant: $10,000
Project Theme: Energy Conservation & Efficiency
Project Description: This project meant to Improve the energy efficiency of Anthony Hall, home to the Graduate Assembly, by replacing the existing single-paned windows with new energy efficient double-paned windows. The project team also planned to undertake the replacement of small building fixtures in order to begin the process of achieving LEED-EB certification for Anthony Hall.
Goals: Aim to reduce electric, steam, and water usage within Anthony Hall through small scale retrofits. Aim to reduce Anthony Hall’s heating and lighting utility bills. Replacing single-paned windows with double-paned windows will reduce heating usage by 40%. Low flush toilets will save 1.9 gallons per flush. Aim to receive LEED EB certification and serve as a green building model for both the UC Berkeley campus and other university graduate assemblies.
