The Fairview: Deep Retrofits in Multifamily Residences

A Building Energy Exchange panel discussion showcasing the deep energy retrofit at The Fairview, a large multi-family residence in Forest Hills.

A deep energy retrofit may seem daunting due to its required capital investment and time. Yet, a holistic, integrated retrofit plan is the key to better building performance and major energy savings. Buildings can also use the retrofit as an opportunity to improve resiliency to extreme weather events by adopting on-site energy generation systems like combined heat and power (CHP) and solar photovoltaic panels.

This panel consisted of representatives from the building, engineering company, and contractors, who worked on the facility’s gas conversion and installation of high efficiency domestic hot water heaters, solar photovoltaic panels, and CHP. Members shared their project implementation experiences and discussed the energy savings achieved, system performance benefits created, and rebates and incentive programs utilized to help fund the retrofit.
