The University of Florida's J. Wayne Reitz Union has a multitude of issues related to inspecting and maintaining the building, to an article from Facilities Maintenance Decisions on the FacilitiesNet website.
Maintaining the facility also means upgrading and renovating systems and equipment in order to keep pace with evolving demands.
The result of the retrocommissioning and master plan processes at the Union was an expansion that added a wing to the building and renovations of 80,000 square feet of the existing structure. The project included a number of energy-saving measures, one of which was replacing all incandescent and fluorescent lighting with LED fixtures.
It also included changing out air handlers and chillers and pipe and ductwork and VFDs while moving a ballroom up to another floor and adding structural stability members to the facility.See the latest posts on our homepage
