Because of the multiple buildings, expansive area, and remote location, Interface looked for innovative ways to save Young Life energy and money. By capitalizing on energy opportunities, technical creativity and sharing a common goal for sustainable design, Creekside offers robust and innovative mechanical systems that deliver impressive energy cost savings to the owner every year. The innovative central utility plant (CUP) is at the heart of it all providing the campus chilled and heating water. Load tracking and shifting was achieved with a direct digital control system and occupancy sensors. As occupants at the camp move from one building to the next, the chilled and heating water follows; a phenomena that allowed the design team to reduce and truly optimize the size of the CUP, saving the owner thousands of dollars.
