Challenge

To realize external funding contributions, the ReSet projects were required to meet specific energy targets, while maintaining aggressive implementation schedules that also included repairs to all deferred maintenance elements.

Solution

Through an extensive investigation and performance evaluation phase, the design team were able to propose systems that would achieve the greatest benefit within the budget constraints. This included evaluation and energy analysis of various options, including glazing replacement, overcladding, and reconstruction of the balcony thermal bridging elements. The preliminary investigation work also identified all deferred maintenance (state-of-good-repair) elements and prioritized upgrades to simultaneously address these items within the energy retrofit. Ultimately, the project prioritized window replacement for energy impacts and improvements to occupant thermal comfort. Extensive design and mockup review of the proposed systems were carried out to ensure that performance could be achieved while minimizing installation time within the continuously occupied building.
