c. Utility records that provide energy consumption and cost data. Large energy users can be
identified if records are available for separate areas of the facility, individual buildings, or systems.
d. Buildings or systems which are scheduled for shutdown or demolition will be identified by the site
facility engineer and will not be included in the project.
e. Occupancy schedules for buildings and individual areas within buildings, and equipment
operating schedules. These schedules provide information which will be used in design, and will aid in
identifying operating changes resulting in energy savings.
Building data and details of wall sections will be used to calculate the building heat loss and heat
g. Data communication media type, routing, installation costs, site specific conditions, maintenance
costs, and use will be coordinated with the facility communications office.
BUILDINGS AND SYSTEMS SELECTION.
a. Selection of buildings and systems is required for confirmation of energy savings to be included in
the validation of the DD form 1391 or other funding documentation.
b. The list of selected buildings should include those buildings and systems which have appropriate
savings from energy, labor, or cost avoidance.
c. Buildings will be subdivided to identify quantities and types of systems with their associated
occupancy schedules, equipment operating schedules, and other required operating parameters. A
detailed survey is required to verify all information retrieved.
d. Hospitals will be carefully evaluated prior to inclusion into a UMCS. Functions such as demand
limiting may not be possible for building systems in the hospital environment.
DESIGN SURVEY. Specific requirements for performing the design survey are at Appendix D.
a. One of the first activities which will take place is a design kickoff meeting with the following
personnel in attendance. This design kickoff meeting will cover the scope of the project, expected
problem areas, scheduling of survey and other work required at the site, and identification of all
organizations to be contacted during the design process.
Government design representative.
Architect-engineer design representative (where applicable).
Facility engineer representative.
Operations personnel (including future UMCS operators).
b. The design survey will include the following tasks:
Verify information retrieved.
Determine buildings and system operating schedules.
Identify any equipment not documented.
Record equipment nameplate data.
