The energy retrofit at the University of Florida’s J. Wayne Reitz Union met the numerous goals established for the project--improving the quality and functionality of the building and its key systems, while also reducing long-term operational and energy costs and supporting the university’s sustainability goals.

The only constants during 50 years of adding and renovating various spaces at the University of Florida’s student union were the mechanical systems, lighting and controls. An energy performance contract not only improved occupant comfort and building performance but saves over 3 million kWh annually.

Since the original structure opened in 1967, the numerous additions to the J. Wayne Reitz Union changed the footprint of the building and added a significant amount of square footage. The changes also resulted in the loss of a cohesive building design and performance challenges--with disparate systems that did not communicate with each other or work efficiently together. Different sections of the building varied greatly in efficiency and needs.
