- Utility & Energy Management Master Plan
Burns & McDonnell updated TAMU's utility and energy management master plan and assisted with compliance and reporting. The master plan extends efficiency beyond the utility infrastructure into building standards and aids management in securing funding and approval for necessary efficiency upgrades over the next 30 years, as the campus expands by a projected 56 percent. Recommendations — including thermal energy storage and a heat pump chiller — involve $170 million in utility capital projects with $33 million in life cycle savings. Burns & McDonnell also secured a $10 million U.S. Department of Energy grant for TAMU.
